Join Susan Olenchuk for a session on pipeline safety regulation during the Energy Bar Association's Energy Law Academy Course 101.
The goal of Course 101 is to provide an overview of the federal regulation of the natural gas industry by the Federal Energy Regulatory Commission. Taught by industry practitioners and regulators from FERC, the course begins with a brief overview of the natural gas industry, including the production, gathering, transportation, distribution, and storage of natural gas. The course describes key statutes governing and affecting the interstate transportation of natural gas and discusses key legal milestones. Instructors explain important regulatory concepts, pipeline services, and the scope and limits of FERC jurisdiction. The course covers key sections of the NGA, including imports and exports under Section 3; construction and abandonment under section 7; ratemaking under sections 4 and 5; and enforcement issues.
