Natural Gas Policy Act (NGPA)

The Natural Gas Policy Act broadened federal oversight of natural gas production, attempting to ensure a stable market.

Slides

The Natural Gas Policy Act (NGPA) granted the Federal Energy Regulatory Commission (FERC) authority over intrastate and interstate natural gas production. The main goals of the Act are:

  • Creating a single national natural gas market;
  • Equalizing supply with demand; and
  • Allowing market forces to establish the wellhead price of natural gas.
