The Gas Appliance Manufacturers Association (GAMA) and the Association of Home Appliance Manufacturers (AHAM) have recently sent a letter to FERC Chairman Joseph Kelliher, expressing disappointment with FERC’s June 15 Policy Statement on gas quality and interchangeability. Urging FERC to impose national standards through a rulemaking process, the associations disagree with FERC’s decision to “leave[ ] it to natural gas pipelines and their customers” to address gas composition issues, arguing that such a position does not serve the public interest. “As our industries embark on the important product test phase to research this important safety matter, we are concerned that the policy adopted by the FERC in June will not allow U.S. customers to receive the benefits of translating the results of our testing into national standards,” wrote the associations. The letter is available in the FERC e-Library in Docket No. PL04-3.
