Co Tenancy Agenda v2

Clarksburg Exponent

CLARKSBURG — Officials in the oil and gas industry are applauding President Donald Trump’s intention to nominate two candidates to fill vacancies on the Federal Energy Regulatory Commission.

“The Federal Energy Regulatory Commission needs a quorum in order to approve any pending or future projects,” said Frank Mack, communications project manager for Dominion Energy. “So we welcome any news that would get us to that point.”

 

Trump recently said he plans to nominate Rob Powelson and Neil Chatterjee to the regulatory commission, according to a statement issued by the White House.

The commission is normally composed of five members, but has been operating with only two since February. This has left the commission a member short of the three-member quorum needed to vote on projects. The nominees will have to be confirmed by the Senate before they can begin their terms.
