Natural gas regulatory work is a sweet spot for the team at Greenberg Traurig LLP, which is best known for advising gas pipelines on rate cases, certificate proceedings, FERC enforcements, LNG project safety issues and compliance matters. Howard Nelson is assisting the Interstate Natural Gas Association of America with a FERC inquiry regarding the commission’s policy for recovery of income tax costs and is also providing ongoing regulatory advice to Colonial Pipeline’s refined petroleum products pipeline. Another ongoing matter is the representation of the State of Alaska and Alaska Gasline Development in regulatory issues regarding the development of the Alaska LNG Project; in 2017 Kenneth Minesinger filed an application before the FERC under Section 3 of the Natural Gas Act to construct, own and operate Alaska LNG.
