What the FERC? How a lack of quorum could affect US oil and natural gas

February 13, 2017 (10:18 mins)



Brian Scheid and Meghan Gordon

On February 3, US Federal Energy Regulatory Commission lost its quorum when Chairman Norman Bay announced he had "gone fishin’" and left the agency in regulatory chaos.

Chris Newkumet, DC bureau chief and chief editor of Inside FERC, and Maya Weber, editor of Inside FERC, join senior oil editors Meghan Gordon and Brian Scheid to mull over the impacts of the changes. What does FERC's current state mean for pipeline permitting and oil shipping rates and what does it say about partisanship in Washington?
