Southern Gas Association Technical Conference on Environmental Permitting and Construction

Tampa, Florida

February 22-24

Join us in sunny Tampa to start the year off with a fresh look at trends in the natural gas industry and current requirements for permitting complex pipeline projects.

Several members of our natural gas team will be attending the conference and look forward to spending time with old and new connections. In the midst of all the learning and networking, we’ll also find some time to present on hot topics in the natural gas industry.

Stacey Atella will be sharing insights gained from the FERC 201 Workshop Series, sponsored by the INGAA Foundation and facilitated by POWER Engineers. These ongoing workshops have promoted meaningful, productive, and interactive dialogue among owners/operators, agencies, and service providers in the interstate natural gas transmission industry.

The first three workshops were so successful that two more were added to the series, and more have been proposed. Stacey’s brief presentation will share some history about how the workshops began, what we’ve learned, why it’s an important effort, and what the next steps are.

Stacey will also be teaming up with Chris Deffenbaugh from Burns & McDonnell on More Than Meets the Eye—The Tactics and Strategies of Opposition Groups. They’ll cover tactics and strategies being employed by opposition groups to influence decision makers and project outcomes. Beginning with highlights from Chris’s white paper on the structure and operational behaviors of NGOs, they’ll bring it all into context with Stacey’s case study based on one of her recent projects—the Kinder Morgan Broad Run Expansion.
