Upon consideration of debtor Enron North America Corp.’s Motion Pursuant to Bankruptcy Rule 9019 For Approval of Settlement Agreement Among Enron North America Corp., Trussway Holdings, Inc. and Trussway, Ltd.; and the Court having jurisdiction to consider the Motion and the relief requested therein pursuant to 28 U.S.C. § 157 and 1334; and it appearing that due and proper notice of the Motion and the relief requested therein having been given in accordance with this Court’s Second Amended Case Management Order Establishing, Among Other Things, Noticing Electronic Procedures, Hearing Dates, Independent Website and Alternative Methods of Participation at Hearings, dated December 17, 2002, and no other or further notice need be given; and the relief requested in the Motion being in the best interests of Enron North America Corp. (the “Debtor”) and its estate and creditors; and the Court having reviewed the Motion; and the Court having determined that the legal and factual bases set forth in the Motion establish just cause for relief granted herein and that the Settlement Agreement is fair and reasonable, and after due deliberation and sufficient cause appearing therefor, it is
ORDERED that the Motion is granted in all respects, and it is further

ORDERED that the Debtor is authorized to execute, deliver, implement and fully perform any and all obligations, instruments, documents and papers and to take any and all actions reasonably necessary to consummate the Settlement Agreement and perform any and all obligations contemplated therein, and it is further
ORDERED that the Settlement Agreement may be amended by the parties thereto in accordance with the terms thereof without further order of the Court; provided, however, that, in connection therewith, the parties shall obtain the prior written consent of the Official Committee of Unsecured Creditors, which consent shall not be unreasonably withheld; and provided, however, that any such amendment shall neither be material in nature nor change the economic substance of the settlement approved thereby, and it is further
ORDERED that the Court shall retain exclusive jurisdiction to (i) enforce and implement the terms and provisions of the Settlement Agreement and (ii) resolve any disputes arising under or in connection with the Settlement Agreement and any related documents.

Those parties who did not object, or who withdrew their objections, to the Motion are deemed to have consented to the Motion, and it is further
ORDERED that the failure to specifically include any particular provisions of the Settlement Agreement in this Order shall not diminish or impair the effectiveness of such provisions, it being the intent of the Court that the Debtor’s implementation of the transactions contemplated in the Settlement Agreement be approved in its entirety, and it is further
ORDERED that the stay of this Order provided by the Bankruptcy Rules (including Bankruptcy Rule 6004) whether for ten (10) days or otherwise shall not be applicable to this Order, and this Order shall be effective and enforceable immediately upon entry, and it is further
