GPA Midstream on the presidential executive orders
Published by Lydia Woellwarth,
Yesterday (10 April), President Donald Trump released several executive orders to speed pipeline project approvals. The executive orders are focused, among other issues, on limiting state Clean Water Act reviews of federally permitted pipelines under section 401.
“We have previously seen some states use the 401 permit process to essentially stall valid pipeline projects, and that isn’t right,” said GPA Midstream President and CEO Mark Sutton. “I applaud this administration for taking a stand against this type of invalid action. Too often we see bureaucracies stopping growth; it’s great to see an administration promoting a pro-growth and pro-jobs agenda for the midstream industry.”
GPA Midstream Association represents over 80 corporate members of all sizes; most are US based companies, but the organisation does have members across the globe as well. GPA Midstream members are engaged in the gathering and processing of natural gas into saleable pipeline gas, which are commonly referred to as ‘midstream’ activities in the energy industry. As the primary advocates for the midstream industry, the association enhances the viability of natural gas, natural gas liquids and crude oil through research, technical, environmental, safety and advocacy activities.
