EBA's Gas, Oil and Liquids Steering Committee presents a half-day program on Wednesday, February 3, 2021. Check back for the time and agenda. The Natural Gas Act and the Interstate Commerce Act regulate pipelines in the U.S.; however, the statutes are not the same on matters related to permitting and siting, and federal policy is divergent with regard to rate and terms of service regulation. The half-day virtual program is intended to provide participants with an overview of the NGA and ICA differences from a statutory and practical perspective. It will also discuss FERC's revised policy on the mechanism used to establish the return on equity for jurisdictional pipelines, which was updated this summer. Furthermore, the program will include a presentation on LNG export facility development and siting from the government's perspective.

Agenda is in EST

EBA is seeking approval for MCLE credit from various states.  EBA applied to the following states for MCLE:



MCLE accreditation has been (or will be) requested from states with general MCLE requirements. Each state has its own rules and regulations regarding "CLE". For questions on CLE email  

To apply to a State not listed above, it is the individual's responsibility to collect any handouts or other information required by that States' accreditation board for individual submission and self-certification. Individual on-line credit applications are not accepted by all States.

To assure accreditation, the necessary CLE information must appear on your registration form. You should also add your bar numbers to your profile with EBA.  If your bar number or state are missing, we cannot guarantee receipt of credit.  Only registered attendees are eligible for CLE.  Students are not eligible for CLE.
