Natural Gas Infrastructure

Readiness Assessment


Theresa Pugh, Theresa Pugh Consulting
Thursday, April 6, 2017 ~ 2:00 pm - 3:00 pm


The increasing reliance on natural gas for power generation, a need for natural gas storage capability and pipeline capacity, the aging state of existing natural gas infrastructure, safety and localized reliability concerns post-Aliso Canyon, and public opposition to infrastructure – what implications do these have for electricity costs and localized reliability? How might these natural gas issues impact the future for coal?

Join us as Theresa Pugh discusses an assessment of natural gas infrastructure readiness, and related policy and regulatory matters, including:

• Consequences of pipeline, compressor station, & possible localized storage service disruptions
• Implications of new safety and repair regulations
• Outlook for reliable gas delivery to states lacking gas storage due to unsuitable geology
• FERC – pipeline projects on hold until appointments are made
• Local and regional reactions to gas generation, storage, and pipeline facilities
• Lessons from the Dakota Access Pipeline permitting process
