The Federal Energy Regulatory Commission published on April 25 in the Federal Register a Notice of Inquiry seeking “information and stakeholder perspectives to help the Commission explore whether, and if so how, it should revise its approach under its currently effective policy statement on the certification of new natural gas transportation facilities.”  Comments are due June 25, 2018.

Last week, in anticipation of the FERC Notice, representatives of several environmental organizations (including three members of ABRA: Natural Resources Defense Council, Sierra Club and Southern Environmental Law Center) wrote the Commission to urge the agency “to reform its pipeline review process to ensure that—above all else—the public interest is protected, which is consistent with FERC’s mandate under the Natural Gas Act.”  The groups’ April 18 letter is available here.
