gas facts
Gas Facts
  • Natural gas is the economic/ environmental fuel of choice.
  • 96% of natural gas reserves are outside North America.
  • 25% of World natural gas consumption occurs in the US.
gas supply
Gas Supply
  • Projected domestic production will not keep pace with projected demand
  • Pipeline imports from Canada are declining
  • LNG is the supply source that will fill the demand-supply gap.

lng siting processes
LNG Siting Processes

There are two FERC processes for siting LNG terminals:

  • FERC Traditional Review Process
  • Pre-Filing Process

benefits of pre filing
Benefits of Pre-Filing
  • More interactive NEPA process, no shortcuts
  • Earlier, more direct involvement by FERC, other agencies, landowners
  • Goal of “no surprises”
  • Time savings realized only if we are working together with stakeholders
  • FERC staff is an advocate of the Process, not the Project!
there are opportunities for public involvement
The FERC Process:

Issue Notice of the Application

Project Sponsor Sends Landowner Notification Package

Issue Notice of Intent to Prepare the NEPA Document (i.e., scoping)

Hold Scoping Meetings

Public Input:

File an Intervention; register for e-subscription

Contact the project sponsor w/questions, concerns; contact FERC

Send letters expressing concerns about environmental impact

Attend scoping meetings

There Are Opportunitiesfor Public Involvement
there are opportunities for public involvement1
The FERC Process:

Issue Notice of Availability of the DEIS

Hold Public Meetings on DEIS

Issue a Commission Order

Public Input:

File comments on the adequacy of DEIS

Attend public meetings to give comments on DEIS

Interveners can file a request for Rehearing of a Commission Order

There Are Opportunitiesfor Public Involvement

LNG Siting Issues
  • Safety
  • Takeaway Capacity
  • Local acceptance
  • Federal and State approvals
recent events
Recent Events
  • ABS Study
  • Skikda Accident
  • Reorganization for Safety
  • Fire Marshal Interaction
  • Three “Faces” of LNG
  • Regional Planning
recent events three faces of lng
Recent EventsThree “Faces” of LNG
  • How you get your LNG news affects your perception
    • Popular Press (e.g., Newspapers)
    • Trade Press
    • FERC Filings and Issuances
recent events the ferc model
Recent EventsThe FERC Model
  • A number of studies gave rise to controversy
  • FERC contracted with ABSG to identify models
  • Gives FERC the ability to do more site specific modeling and reviews in EISs
  • Provides a solid theoretical foundation from which to build on as new information becomes available
  • Assumptions in the study are conservative
recent events skikda accident
Recent EventsSkikda Accident
  • Preliminary findings:
    • Initial explosion of high-pressure steam boiler caused by hydrocarbon leakage into combustion air fan
    • Larger secondary explosion of the hydrocarbon vapors in the immediate vicinity.
    • Consequences: Loss of life and plant property
  • March 13 – 15, 2004 – FERC / DOE Team inspected accident site and interviewed Sonatrach.
  • FERC / DOE Report addresses team review.
recent events reorganization for safety
Recent EventsReorganization for Safety
  • New LNG Branch at FERC to focus on and enhance LNG review, inspection programs
  • Provide for Seamless Review of LNG Facilities
    • Interagency Agreement on Safety and Security
  • Application of FERC Model for LNG Tanker Release Consequences
  • RFP out for review of the LNG Program
recent events fire marshal interaction
Recent EventsFire Marshal Interaction
  • National Association of State Fire Marshals (NASFM)
    • The Partnership for Excellence in Pipeline Safety is authorized under a Cooperative Agreement between the NASFM and the OPS
    • NASFM will mobilize America’s emergency responders and the communities they serve to help prevent, safely mitigate and investigate pipeline incidents
      • LNG module being developed
    • www.safepipelines.org
recent events regional planning
Recent EventsRegional Planning
  • FERC’s processing of LNG proposals eliminates the need for regional planning of LNG
    • Our review process addresses the public interest
    • We evaluate the proposals, giving regulatory certainty to all involved stakeholders.
    • Efficient and timely decisions, with proper consideration given to environmental concerns, including examinations of alternative sites, allows the market to pick the appropriate LNG facilities.
outlook issues associated with lng development
Outlook/Issues Associatedwith LNG Development
  • States attempting to assert economic jurisdiction in the post-Hackberry environment
  • Public safety information/Irrational Risk Standard
  • Interchangeability
  • Congressional Legislation
