FERC Seeks Public Comments On Natural Gas Pipeline Evaluations

The Federal Energy Regulatory Commission Friday issued a Notice of Inquiry inviting comments on its process determining the need for and evaluating the environmental impacts of natural gas pipelines.
More specifically, FERC is asking for comments on how the Commission should change its--
--- Methodology for determining whether there is a need for a proposed project, including the Commission’s consideration of precedent agreements and contracts for service as evidence of such need;
-- Consideration of the potential exercise of eminent domain and of landowner interests related to a proposed project;
-- Evaluation of the environmental impact of a proposed project; and
-- Certificate processes including pre-filing, post-filing, and post-order issuance.
FERC has not changed its process for 19 years.
