Geosyntec Adds More Energy to its Gulf Coast Operations

BATON ROUGE, La. — Geosyntec Consultants welcomes Andrew Goldberg and Anica Haynes to its Baton Rouge, La., office.

Andy and Anica bring extensive experience in securing regulatory authorizations for new and existing energy facilities, including pipelines and natural gas storage facilities, electric power generation and transmission, and alternative energy facilities. They specialize in the development and comprehensive environmental permitting of Federal Energy Regulatory Commission (FERC) regulated and non-FERC regulated natural gas storage and pipeline transmission projects. Andy and Anica provide clients with "value added service" from their understanding and knowledge of the big picture, not just the environmental portion of a project.
