On February 18, FERC reopened its review of the 1999 Policy Statement on the certification of new interstate natural gas facilities - Docket No. PL18-1-000. This effort is intended to build upon FERC’s April 2018 Notice of Inquiry (NOI). FERC is looking for new information and additional perspectives to help guide its review. As such, this NOI reissues prior questions raised in the 2018 NOI, modifies some of these prior questions (primarily concerning the scope of authority for NEPA review and GHG emissions), and adds a new category of questions on Environmental Justice.
On Wednesday, May 26, EIC filed comments in response to the NOI. EIC’s comments may be found HERE.
