September 2015
Atlanta, GA

On September 15-18, Steptoe partners Steve Brose, Steve Reed, and Daniel Poynor will speak at the Association of Oil Pipe Lines’ 2015 Annual Business Conference in Atlanta, Georgia.

At the conference, Mr. Brose will present “Tariff Design and Profitability in a Regulatory Environment.”  This presentation will focus on ways to maximize profit under the Interstate Commerce Act and FERC’s tariff regulations.  Mr. Brose will also participate on a panel titled “EPAct 1992 Revisited “ as well as a separate panel on “Cost of Service Ratemaking.”  Mr. Reed will present “The History of Liquid Pipeline Regulation” and at a subsequent session, will participate on a panel titled “FERC Decisions Update.”

Daniel Poynor’s presentation on the afternoon of September 17 is titled “Regulatory Basics for Oil Pipelines.”  The presentation will give an overview of oil pipeline regulation by the Federal Energy Regulatory Commission (“FERC”).  In a later session, “FERC Jurisdictional Jeopardy,” Mr. Poynor will address the legal and factual considerations that determine whether a pipeline is regulated by the Federal Energy Regulatory Commission as an interstate common carrier oil pipeline.

Steptoe will also be hosting an evening reception on September 16.
