FERC Won’t Change Pipeline Approval Policy Until 5 Members Vote

FERC Chairman Neil Chatterjee

On Monday Federal Energy Regulatory Commission (FERC) Chairman Neil Chatterjee addressed the EnVision Forum at the University of Kentucky. Among his comments: FERC won’t reconsider how it approves pipelines, the framework it uses, until there are a full five members of the Commission (currently there are three). President Trump recently nominated a fourth person as commissioner, James Danly (see Trump Selects FERC Attorney James Danly as New Commissioner). Don’t look for a full quorum to be available any time soon. The last time FERC updated its pipeline approval framework was 20 years ago–in 1999.
