API applauded the Senate’s action to confirm Rob Powelson and Neil Chatterjee to be commissioners at FERC – restoring a quorum at the agency.

“With the Senate’s action today to restore a quorum at FERC, the agency will be able to resume its responsibility of properly evaluating and approving natural gas pipeline projects around the country,” said API Midstream Group Director Robin Rorick.

“There are billions of dollars of privately funded infrastructure projects currently tied up at FERC because the agency has lacked a quorum. With the confirmation of both Powelson and Chatterjee, the agency can now move forward in approving the critical natural gas infrastructure that will create jobs across the country, and help ensure that consumers can have access to clean-burning, affordable, reliable natural gas,” Rorick concluded.
