API applauded action by the US House of Representatives to approve legislation that would streamline the Federal Energy Regulatory Commission’s (FERC) permitting process for the construction and approval of natural gas pipelines.

This is an important step in strengthening our nation’s energy infrastructure and creating US jobs across the country,” said API Midstream and Industry Operations Group Director, Robin Rorick. “Creating certainty and improving efficiency in the permitting process for natural gas pipelines will ensure that consumers continue benefitting from affordable, reliable, clean burning natural gas.”

Private investment in our nation’s energy infrastructure is a US$1 trillion proposition that could support 1 million jobs annually through 2035, according to a recent ICF study commissioned by API.

“We urge the Senate to approve this legislation so that American workers, consumers, and the environment can continue to benefit from our nation’s abundant supply of natural gas,” said Rorick.
