In a single, easy-to-use volume, the Desk Book captures a wealth of background information about the interstate natural gas pipeline industry in the United States. The Desk Book spans many topics,including the evolution of natural gas regulation, current challenges facing the industry, the legal and regulatory framework under which pipelines operate, and new and evolving issues such as post-9/11 security and the potential regulation of greenhouse gas emissions. The volume also provides background on the construction and operation of natural gas transmission lines and an extensive glossary of natural gas industry terminology.
The INGAA Interstate Pipeline Desk Book will be an evolving document. This second edition of the desk book provides updates on developments and highlights issues that have emerged since we published the inaugural edition in 2007. We hope that you find this to be a valuable reference source and welcome your comments in response to the Desk Book.
