Federal Energy Regulatory Commission
The Federal Energy Regulatory Commission (FERC) has the exclusive authority to approve or deny an application for the siting, construction, expansion, or operation of an LNG terminal and interstate natural gas pipeline per the Natural Gas Act. The FERC is the lead federal agency that will determine whether Corpus Christi Liquefaction, LLC (CCL) and Cheniere Corpus Christi Pipeline, LP (CCPL) will be issued an Order Granting Authority under Sections 3 and 7(c), respectively, of the Natural Gas Act for the construction and operation of the Stage 3 Project. The FERC will also monitor all construction and restoration activities to ensure that CCL and CCPL comply with all federal, state, and local permits, plans, and regulations.
