S&P Global Platts reports that the U.S. Pipeline and Hazardous Materials Administration (PHMSA) will be taking the lead role in evaluating proposed LNG project applications’ compliance with siting requirements in PHMSA regulations related to LNG facilities. PHMSA reportedly sent letters to the developers of proposed LNG projects with applications pending at FERC notifying them of the new process on siting reviews. According to the report, “PHMSA has previously provided feedback or evaluation of FERC’s reviews of project design but will now take on a more front-line role in conducting reviews.”
