Jackson’s WLBT interviewed MEI President Patrick Sullivan in regards to SB 2568, a bill that would enable public use of intrastate pipelines with royalties compensation determined by the Public Service Commission.

Original legislation in 1984 laid the current legal framework which allows open access to the pipelines but does not require them to be common carriers.

The law in question would retroactively impact measures that the legislature put in place over two decades ago that helped build the state’s industry in carbon dioxide-based oil production (a still emerging business.)
