Southern requests authorization to acquire, upgrade, construct, and operate certain natural gas pipeline and compression facilities in Clayton, Cobb, Fayetteville, Fulton, and Monroe Counties, Georgia. The project would provide approximately 343 million cubic feet per day of new firm transportation capacity to delivery points in Southern’s Zone 2 and Zone 3 systems. The EA assesses the potential environmental effects of the construction and operation of the Fairburn Expansion Project in accordance with the requirements of the National Environmental Policy Act (NEPA). The FERC staff concludes that approval of the proposed project, with appropriate mitigating measures, would not constitute a major federal action significantly affecting the quality of the human environment. The U.S. Army Corps of Engineers and the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency participated as a cooperating agency in the preparation of the EA. Cooperating agencies have jurisdiction by law or special expertise with respect to resources potentially affected by the proposal and participate in the NEPA analysis. The proposed Fairburn Expansion Project includes the following facilities in Georgia: • One new 4.9-mile-long 30-inchdiameter Fairburn Lateral pipeline, extending from the Transcontinental Gas Pipe Line Company interconnect in Fayette County to a new proposed 18,000-horsepower electric Fairburn Compressor Station with pig 1 receiver in Fulton County; 1 A pig is a tool that the pipeline company inserts into and pushes through the pipeline for cleaning the pipeline, conducting internal inspections, or other purposes.
