The Natural Gas Supply Association (NGSA) and the Center for Liquefied Natural Gas (CLNG) have released a statement welcoming the White House’s announcement of the nomination of Neil Chatterjee and Rob Powelson to the Federal Energy Regulatory Commission (FERC).

The President and CEO of the NGSA, Dena E. Wiggins, said: “The nominees by the White House to the Federal Energy Regulatory Commission today are exceptionally well-qualified to serve on the Commission. Together they bring a wealth of experience in different regulatory aspects of the energy industry.

“We hope the Senate will move expeditiously to confirm these nominees and bring FERC back to the necessary quorum to act on natural gas infrastructure projects.”

The Executive Director of CLNG, Charlie Riedl, added: “These nominations are welcome news. Having a quorum at FERC will allow LNG developers to move forward with confidence that the required permits and permissions to build projects will be considered quickly and efficiently.”
