SCHEDULING

  • FERC sets schedule for Federal auth. related to NGA projects

    • Ensure expeditious completion of proceedings

    • Each fed agency w/ an aspect shall cooperate with FERC and

  • Agencies shall comply with the schedule


Authorities given to ferc lng pipelines cont d

Authorities Given to FERC LNG & Pipelines (cont’d)

CONSOLIDATED RECORD

  • FERC maintains a consolidated record

    • Agencies must help create this record

    • Must use this record for appeals

  • The intent of the record and schedule is to reduce redundancy and sequential processes


Authorities given to ferc lng pipelines cont d1

  • Record is for decisions & appeals of CZMA or judicial review of agency actions or failure to act

  • For Federal authorizations other than the CZMA, jurisdiction is:

    • DC Circuit for failure to act, or

    • Circuit for project area for appeal

      [Bypasses agency appeal processes]


Ferc coordination with states lng only

FERC Coordination with States– LNG Only

  • Governor appoints an agency to consult

    -ME,NY,NJ,DE,MD,MS,LA,TX,CA,OR-
