Program Summary
The goal of this primer is to provide an overview of the federal regulation of the natural gas industry by the Federal Energy Regulatory Commission. Taught by industry practitioners and regulators from FERC, the course begins with a brief overview of the natural gas industry, including the production, gathering, transportation, distribution, and storage of natural gas. The course describes key statutes governing and affecting the interstate transportation of natural gas and discusses key legal milestones. Instructors explain important regulatory concepts, pipeline services, and the scope and limits of FERC jurisdiction. The class covers key sections of the NGA, including imports and exports under Section 3; construction and abandonment under section 7; ratemaking under sections 4 and 5; and enforcement issues.
 
About the EBA Primer Series
One of the goals of the Energy Bar Association’s Strategic Plan is to promote excellence in the practice of energy law by enhancing opportunities for educational programming.  To further this goal, EBA has established a “primer program,” focused on teaching core regulatory and legal concepts and basic industry fundamentals that every energy law practitioner must understand.  The overall goal of this course is to provide attorneys new to the oil and refined products pipeline industry a foundational understanding of the industry and how it is organized and regulated, so they are better equipped to assist clients in this industry.
