During a U.S. Senate Energy Committee yesterday, Senator Ron Wyden (D-Ore.) called FERC’s natural gas infrastructure siting process a “disaster.” The hearing was called to discuss federal siting authority for electricity transmission lines and the suggestion was made that the process could be more similar to natural gas siting authority, but Sen. Wyden took exception to this suggestion, saying that his experience in Oregon with the Bradwood Landing LNG project did not create much confidence in the federal siting process. A webcast of the hearing is available on the Senate Energy Committee’s website and Senator Wyden’s comments begin at the 115-minute mark.
