Doug Pedigo Quoted in Midstream Business on FERC Pipeline Approval Process

“Experts: Pipeline Ruling Could Set Troubling Precedent”

Industry observers are concerned that the recent court ruling that orders federal regulators to assess the downstream emission impact of natural gas pipeline projects could set a troubling precedent, even if it’s too early to call the decision a game-changer.

“[The decision] is extremely important because it has the potential effect on the timeliness of regulatory review, which is crucial to the viability of any of these projects,” Doug Pedigo, Houston-based partner with Thompson & Knight who regularly counsel carriers and shippers in connection with large-scale infrastructure projects, told Hart Energy.
