Holland & Hart lawyers routinely represent clients in a broad array of energy regulatory matters in federal and state agency proceedings, and we have extensive experience in representing clients before the Federal Energy Regulatory Commission (FERC). In addition to providing legal advice and guidance regarding FERC's general regulatory requirements, Holland & Hart brings specific experience with some of the most rigorous and technically challenging expectations of the licensing process.
Natural Gas Pipelines
Our experience touches many regulatory issues, including the evolution of FERC's open access policies in the natural gas pipeline industry as they have developed over the past two decades. We have assisted clients with drafting policies to comply with FERC's Standards of Conduct and project agreements establishing multinational partnership structures to support development of U.S. and international jurisdictional pipeline infrastructure projects. Our lawyers have experience filing petitions and obtaining waivers of FERC's prohibition of tying arrangements to allow gas supply agreements and related firm transportation agreements to be sold to pre-arranged bidders pursuant to FERC-approved auction processes.
