Revisions to Procedural Regulations Governing Transportation by Intrastate Pipelines
The Federal Energy Regulatory Commission is proposing to revise its regulations to provide optional notice procedures for processing rate filings by those natural gas pipelines that fall under the Commission's jurisdiction pursuant to the Natural Gas Policy Act of 1978 or the Natural Gas Act. An intrastate pipeline may elect to use these procedures for approval of a filing pursuant to the Commission's regulations. Under these procedures, if there is no protest to the filing as determined under this proposal, the filing would be deemed approved without a Commission order. The proposed rule would result in regulatory certainty and a reduction of regulatory burdens.
