The United States Federal Energy Regulatory Commission informed that the chairman Kevin McIntyre passed away.

He was nominated to the position of FERC chairman by president Donald Trump, and joined the commission as chairman on December 7, 2017.

McIntyre served as chairman until October 24, 2018, after having spearheaded several initiatives, including a proceeding on resilience of the wholesale electricity grid, an inquiry into whether to revise the commission’s pipeline certification process, and an agreement with the Department of Transportation’s Pipeline and Hazardous Materials Safety Administration (PHMSA) to coordinate the siting and safety review of FERC-jurisdictional LNG facilities, FERC said in its statement.

Prior to joining the commission, McIntyre was the co-leader of the global energy practice at the law firm Jones Day, where he practiced law for most of his nearly 30-year legal career.

At the firm, he had an expansive FERC practice, counseling and representing clients in nearly all industry sectors, including natural gas, conventional electricity, oil, hydropower, wind power and other renewable resources, and energy marketing and trading.
