HESLIN AND SOSNICK TO INSTRUCT FERC NATURAL GAS 101 COURSE HOSTED BY EUCI FEB. 22-23: Moore & Van Allen Member Brian Heslin and Kenneth Sosnick of Concentric Energy Advisors, Inc. will instruct the FERC Natural Gas 101 course hosted by EUCI on February 22-23, 2017 in Houston, TX. Natural gas continues to play an increasing role in our nation’s burgeoning energy industry. In the next twenty or so years, natural gas production is projected to constitute almost 40% of U.S. energy production and natural gas consumption is projected to increase more than other fuel sources due to demand from the industrial and electric power sectors. This course is ideal for those individuals seeking a basic knowledge of FERC’s natural gas and LNG policies and regulations, those interested in the setting of transportation and storage rates, those who want to learn about current hot topics, and those looking for a refresher course.
The course will provide a comprehensive overview of FERC’s impact on the natural gas and LNG industries, covering: (1) fundamentals of natural gas regulation, (2) the jurisdictional reach of and limits on FERC’s power, (3) how FERC’s exercise of that power affects the regulated entities that it oversees, (4) FERC policies and decisions on issues such as capacity management, secondary markets, and certification of projects; ratemaking, including developing cost-of- service rates and market-based rates; storage; standards of conduct and enforcement; LNG; as well as other timely issues, and (5) identifying future challenges.
