What’s Up With Infrastructure? Interstate Pipeline Regulatory Committee Jeff Wright, Chief Energy Infrastructure Policy Group Office of Energy Projects Federal Energy Regulatory Commission Phoenix, Arizona October 9, 2003
FERC Office of Energy Projects 1 FERC Helping Markets Work Adequate Infrastructure Standard Market Rules Competitive Market Monitoring & Oversight
FERC Office of Energy Projects 2 FERC/OEP Tools Create a Forum for Discussion – Outreach Conferences Advise – Study Existing Facilities – Meet with Stakeholder Groups Our Process – Act on Certificate Filings
FERC Office of Energy Projects 3 Why An Infrastructure Group? The Chairman wanted a group dedicated to infrastructure issues and wanted it located in OEP. The convergence of gas and electric necessitates examinations of infrastructure dedicated to both as well as hydro, coal and oil issues. Need to research and present findings, both publicly and in-house.
FERC Office of Energy Projects 4 Mission Statement The Energy Infrastructure Policy Group would apprise the Commission of the status of the national energy infrastructure providing timely and accurate guidance on how national energy infrastructure needs can be met
FERC Office of Energy Projects 5 Objectives The Energy Infrastructure Policy Group would provide infrastructure guidance on measures before the Commission, prepare periodic regional reports on the status of national energy infrastructure, and, upon request, conduct special infrastructure studies.
FERC Office of Energy Projects 6 Organization EIPG is part of OEP’s front office staff. Answers directly to the Director and Deputy Director. Operates collegially. Group leader serves as focal point for assignments
FERC Office of Energy Projects 7 Staff Five multidisciplinary people with strong oral and computer-based presentation skills. Uses Commission-wide resource as required by the task. Regularly work with representatives of OMTR, OMOI, and OGC.
FERC Office of Energy Projects 8 Specific Duties Regional Assessments Regional Infrastructure Conferences Reports to the Commission – Closed and Open Meetings Convene Meetings with CRE and NEB North American Energy Working Group Other Duties As Assigned….

What Have We Been Doing Lately? A quick look at Western US Gas Infrastructure
The West is dependent on production from gas originating mainly in the Rockies, Southwest and Canada.

The West is dependent on pipeline capacity originating in Canada and the Southwest. As the Rocky Mountain basins develop, increased pipeline capacity will be required to transport this gas towards markets in the West and Midwest. 1.8 Bcf/d 1.1 Bcf/d 0.2 Bcf/d 0.5 Bcf/d 3.8 Bcf/d 1.8 Bcf/d 0.4 Bcf/d Source: RDI’s Powermap and EEA’s April 2002 data base (Average Pipeline Capacity for 2002) Major Western Interstate Gas Pipelines Colorado Interstate Gas Co.

FERC Office of Energy Projects 27 Proved Gas Reserves Wyoming and Colorado comprised 10% and 7%, respectively, of EIA’s estimated total proved US gas reserves of Tcf as of 12/31/01. Wyoming had the largest increase in proved reserves, by state or federal region, from 2000 to 2001 at 2.2 Tcf. (Total US reserves increased by 6 Tcf.)
FERC Office of Energy Projects 28 Rocky Mountain Pipelines Source: RDI Power Map and Capacity Volumes from Energy and Environmental Analysis Inc’s (EEA) April 2002 Base Case. Eleven interstate pipelines are located within the four states that encompass the Rocky Mountain region. These 11 pipelines have total average pipeline capacity of 5,204 MMcf/d coming out of the Rockies as of May 2003.

FERC Office of Energy Projects 30 Productive Capacity vs. Pipeline Capacity EIA shows that the Rockies could produce up to 6 Bcf per day through Wyoming Energy Commission shows that the Rockies could produce up to almost 8.0 Bcf per day by 2005 and 11.0 Bcf per day by Both of these totals are greater than the current pipeline capacity of the region.
