Sign Our Comment to FERC

The Federal Energy Regulatory Commission (FERC) is accepting public comments on its draft Environmental Impact Statement (DEIS) for Kern River Gas Transmission Company's Delta Lateral Project, an important project that will expand natural gas capacity of Kern River’s existing transmission system in Utah. A favorable final EIS is necessary for the project to remain on schedule to begin construction in March 2023.

Sign our petition below that we will submit to FERC before the DEIS public comment period ends on Monday, December 27.

Dear Secretary Bose:

I stand with Pipeliners Local 798 in support of Kern River Gas Transmission Company's Delta Lateral Project. This important project will enable Kern River to meet rising natural gas demands in the area and will support good jobs for local craftsmen, including Local 798 members.

In its draft EIS, FERC found the project’s environmental impacts would be reduced to “less-than-significant levels”due to the minimization and mitigation measures proposed by Kern River and recommended by the Commission. Project leaders remain committed to these mitigation efforts and continue to collaborate with stakeholders and environmental experts to develop the most responsible and efficient development plan. I see no reason to alter this review in the final EIS.

Overall, I support the Delta Lateral Project for the following reasons:

  • Project leaders have consistently collaborated with stakeholders and environmental experts to ensure it meets or exceeds federal safety standards while developing the most efficient and responsible pipeline route;
  • Delta Lateral is a critical part of the region’s energy infrastructure network and its carbon reduction strategy, as it is designed to provide firm transportation service for the Intermountain Power Project (IPP) in Utah, which is working towards installing gas-fired generating units capable of using hydrogen, and developing hydrogen production and long-term storage capabilities;
  • Local 798 recognizes Kern River’s history of designing, constructing and operating safe and reliable pipeline systems. The company has demonstrated this same commitment with Delta Lateral.

Due to the reasons discussed above, I support the Delta Lateral Project and urge the swift approval of necessary permits.
