Comments to FERC on Natural Gas Infrastructure

The Federal Energy Regulatory Commission (FERC) issued a notice of inquiry on how to revise its policy on certifying the construction and operation of interstate natural gas transportation facilities. We submitted comments recommending several ways FERC can improve its evaluation of environmental impacts and its methodology for determining whether there is need for a proposed project. Additionally, we worked with a coalition of non-profit environmental groups to submit joint comments supporting FERC's use of the social cost of greenhouse gases to assess climate impacts.

These comments supplement our July 2018 comments on a previous FERC NOI.
