The American Petroleum Institute (API) has issued a statement welcoming President Trump’s nomination of Neil Chatterjee and Rob Powelson as US Federal Energy Regulatory Commission (FERC) commissioners.

The API also highlighted the importance of a working quorum at the agency so it can continue to properly evaluate and advance energy infrastructure projects across the country.

API Midstream Group Director, Robin Rorick, said: “This action by the administration is an important step to establishing a working quorum at FERC […] Now, the agency will be able to continue its essential duty of advancing critical infrastructure projects around the country and setting essential energy market rules.

“We appreciate the Senate’s commitment to act on President Trump’s well-qualified nominees and look forward to working with the Trump administration and Congress to promote forward-looking policies that advance our nation’s energy leadership throughout the world.”
