Rumble In the Regulatory Jungle: Rockefeller v. Hart: A Comparison of the NGA and ICA

February 3, 2021 12:00 pm — 3:15 pm


This conference is co-sponsored by the Energy Bar Association and the Environmental Law Institute.


EBA's Gas, Oil and Liquids Steering Committee presents a half-day program on Wednesday, February 3, 2021. The Natural Gas Act and the Interstate Commerce Act regulate pipelines in the U.S.; however, the statutes are not the same on matters related to permitting and siting, and federal policy is divergent with regard to rate and terms of service regulation. The half-day virtual program is intended to provide participants with an overview of the NGA and ICA differences from a statutory and practical perspective. It will also discuss FERC's revised policy on the mechanism used to establish the return on equity for jurisdictional pipelines, which was updated this summer. Furthermore, the program will include a presentation on LNG export facility development and siting from the government's perspective
