Although FERC’s Order No. 665 makes the pre-filing process mandatory only for LNG projects, in practice it is used for all greenfield pipeline and storage projects and major expansions. It is during this phase that FERC and other agencies’ staff, the public and other interested parties can freely communicate, identify and resolve issues and expedite the application once it is filed. The process begins with visits to FERC and other federal and state agencies, which BWMQ can facilitate. At this stage, the issues primarily are environmental and land use, rather than commercial.
