Description

The FERC has adopted a more assertive approach to oversight of natural gas markets. Firms with lax compliance standards leave themselves vulnerable to stiff penalties and time-consuming investigations.

The importance of a strong regulatory compliance culture is an increasingly essential aspect of operating in the natural gas industry. Complying with regulations is, moreover, both complex and difficult. Failure to properly account for regulated actions may lead to a FERC inquiry, which will inevitably distract from your firm’s core goals and could potentially lead to strong and costly sanctions, even if violations are clearly unintentional.

Firms actively committed to maintaining a compliance culture, however, have received favorable treatment during FERC investigations. But a strong compliance culture must be created; it will not simply occur by itself. Cultivating a culture that will protect the organization requires a detailed understanding of the issues involved and a detailed plan of action.

The FERC Gas Compliance Conference will assemble experts to provide advice on creating a strong compliance culture, insight into the latest enforcement trends and what you need to do if action is taken against your company. The Conference is specifically designed for players in the natural gas industry. This is your chance to get your toughest questions answered.
