FERC Notice of Workshop; Better Stakeholder Involvement: How To Make It Work

The Office of Energy Projects is initiating the second phase of its Better Stakeholder Involvement Series.  These workshops will explore ways to help make the pre-filing stakeholder involvement work.  This first workshop will be held in Atlanta, Georgia on Thursday, April 4, 2002 from 9:15 a.m. to 12:30 p.m. at the Atlanta Capitol Plaza, 450 Capitol Avenue, SW, Atlanta, Georgia 30312, phone: 404-591-2000, fax: 404-591-1999.  FERC plans to conduct future workshops around the country throughout the upcoming year.

FERC is inviting interstate natural gas companies; Federal, state and local agencies; landowners and other non-governmental organizations with a continuing interest in developing successful strategies for involving people in the pre-filing process.  The purpose of these workshops is to discuss how stakeholders are implementing the ideas outlined in the staff report.  The merits of any pending or planned pipeline projects will not be discussed.
