Under Section 7 of the Natural Gas Act, the Commission reviews applications for the construction and operation of natural gas pipelines. It also authorizes natural gas storage construction and rates, and has lead siting authority and shared responsibility with other government agencies for Liquefied Natural Gas facilities. In its application review of proposed natural gas infrastructure projects, the Commission ensures that the applicant will comply with environmental conditions, and any mitigation actions needed to soften potential impacts to resources and the public from the project. Brown Williams helps clients understand the nature of the conditions sought by the FERC staff and intervenors, craft solutions to their concerns, and ensure the client meets those certificate conditions. In addition, certificate orders contain conditions related to initial rates and pro forma tariff provisions.
