Daily GPI / Regulatory / NGI All News Access


The American Chemistry Council (ACC) offered clarification to the Jan. 9 Daily GPI article "Bill to Expedite NatGas Pipeline Permitting to Get Second Chance in Congress" (see Daily GPIJan. 9). The legislation (HR 161) reintroduced by Rep. Mike Pompeo (R-KS), which would establish a set deadline for federal and state agencies to approve pipeline applications, does not apply to natural gas liquids, as ACC originally stated in the article. "Pipelines will be vital to transport natural gas from production sites to facilities around the country," ACC told NGI. "Modernizing the pipeline permitting process will support U.S. manufacturing growth while helping to keep energy and electricity reliable and affordable." Pompeo's bill would establish a 12-month deadline for the Federal Energy Regulatory Commission to approve gas pipeline applications, and other federal permitting agencies would have 90 days (with a potential extension of 30 days) to complete a separate review of the project.
