Baker Botts attorneys also have considerable experience obtaining authorizations from the various other federal and state agencies that have jurisdiction over different aspects of LNG projects. For example, we successfully litigated appeals on behalf of clients, Hess and AES, before the U.S. Secretary of Commerce and the federal courts to reverse state actions under the Coastal Zone Management Act associated with proposed LNG terminals. In addition to our representation in permitting proceedings, we routinely provide analysis on the scope of jurisdiction of the FERC, DOE, PHMSA, and other federal and state agencies over large and small-scale LNG projects, as well as advice regarding compliance with the regulatory requirements of those agencies. Our knowledge of the developing regulatory landscape allows us to assist our transactional clients such as Cheniere, Jordan Cove, Sempra, and the customer of the proposed Magnolia LNG terminal, in complying with the regulatory obligations set forth in their contracts and in structuring LNG projects strategically from a regulatory perspective. TAX Baker Botts tax lawyers advise sponsors of LNG projects on structuring of project companies and contractual arrangements to minimize the worldwide effective taxation of the projects and their participants. We have particular experience in advising our clients in obtaining critical tax abatements and in minimizing U.S. federal and state taxation of LNG sales and transportation from the U.S., and other related activities. ENVIRONMENTAL EXPERIENCE With lawyers dedicated to the environmental landscape, Baker Botts provides integrated advice to its energy clients. Our lawyers help our clients secure the broad range of environmental authorizations for siting, developing and modifying LNG liquefaction terminals, onshore and offshore LNG regasification terminals, natural gas pipelines, natural gas storage projects and related facilities. For example, we assisted ExxonMobil with National Environmental Policy Act (NEPA) review, state environmental permits, air quality conformity determinations and coastal zone management
