Susan Olenchuk and Michael Pincus will both be featured presenters at the Energy Bar Association's Natural Gas Primer. 

The primer serves as an introduction to the federal laws regulating the natural gas industry. Taught by industry practitioners and regulators from the Federal Energy Regulatory Commission, the course begins with a brief overview of the natural gas industry, including the production, gathering, transportation, distribution, and storage of natural gas. The course describes key statutes governing and affecting the interstate transportation of natural gas and discusses key legal milestones. Instructors explain important regulatory concepts, pipeline services, and the scope and limits of FERC jurisdiction. The class covers key sections of the NGA, including imports and exports under Section 3; construction and abandonment under section 7; ratemaking under sections 4 and 5; and enforcement issues.

CLE credit will be available in New York, Illinois, and Virginia.
