Thank you for your interest in the FERC Environmental Review and Compliance for Natural Gas Facilities Seminar!
- On Monday, December 4, 2017 FERC staff will present a 1/2 day session. The “FERC Liquefied Natural Gas (LNG) Regulatory Lifecycle” to be held from 1:00 PM – 5:00 PM on Monday, December 4, 2017 at New Orleans, Louisiana.
- This four-hour seminar will be very similar to last year and will focus on the safety, reliability, and engineering regulatory lifecycle that FERC has implemented on LNG facilities, including the Guidance Manual for Environmental Report Preparation Volume II LNG Facility Resource Reports 11 and 13, and our pre-filing, formal application, NEPA, and post‑authorization regulatory reviews. Topics will cover an introduction to global and domestic energy resources, LNG, regulatory oversight, hazard identification studies, hazardous release analyses, layers of protection reviews, and other associated engineering information relevant to the safety, security, and reliability of LNG facilities under FERC jurisdiction. Examples will be given for various submittals and reviews undertaken on certain engineering documentation. This session is intended for FERC LNG Project applicants, contractors, federal, state, and local agencies, and others with an interest in safety, security, and reliability of LNG and related facilities.
- The first half of the Tuesday through Thursday (December 5-7, 2017), FERC Environmental Review and Compliance, 3-day interactive seminar will describe how to successfully navigate the FERC environmental review process and to prepare an Environmental Report in support of a FERC 7(c) Application.
- The second day and a half will include a brief introduction to pipeline construction for industry newcomers, a discussion of pre-construction preparation considerations, and a review of baseline mitigation measures for pipeline construction and restoration detailed in the FERC Upland Erosion Control, Revegetation, and Maintenance Plan and the FERC Wetland and Waterbody Construction and Mitigation Procedures.
*Priority may be given to those who have NOT previously attended.
Sign-in and course material distribution for the special Monday session will begin at 12:00 PM on Monday, December 4, 2017. There will be a separate sign-in and course material distribution for the Tuesday through Thursday session will begin at 7:30 AM on the first day (Tuesday) of the regular 3-day seminar.

WHAT PARTICIPANTS ARE SAYING
The program provided an invaluable introduction to the environmental regulatory approval and compliance process. The fact that so many of the attendees are well established in the industry is a real testament to the value, quality, and professionalism of the event.
You did an excellent job covering the material within a limited timeframe...and kept things interesting along the way. I learned a lot, enjoyed the course, and am looking forward to applying my newfound knowledge and skills in the field.
Course was more than expected. Well done.
...takes you through a project cradle to grave which many of us do not get to experience. Good format change.
