Baker Botts partners Samia Broadaway, Aileen Hooks and Greg Wagner will be instructing part one of the webinar series “Pipeline Siting: Permitting Updates, Mitigation Requirements, and Land Use Issues in an Unpredictable Environment”. This webinar series is presented by Kinetic, a Colorado based energy industry community.
Part one, “Webinar I: Update on Recent Regulatory and Permitting Developments and Impacts of Trump Administration on Pipeline Projects” will be presented on Tuesday, September 19, 2017 at 12:00 p.m. (CT).
Pipeline siting (as well as the siting of other major energy facilities) in North America has evolved into an increasingly complex, multi-jurisdictional, and multi-dimensional process. With each project, factors including permitting processes and requirements; federal, state, and local laws and regulations as they pertain to energy production and use; “public need” and of the attractiveness of a particular proposal over its alternatives; public and stakeholder involvement; project development and design requirements; and project financing must all be considered.
The goal of this series is to comb through the major regulatory hurdles operators will inevitably face on a new project, give updates on siting and permitting processes under Trump’s administration, as well as provide major considerations in the areas of environmental and land use as project planning gets underway in an effort to offset major delays, budget and timing issues.
