Download as PDF Federal Register / Vol. 71, No. 43 / Monday, March 6, 2006 / Notices Proposed Action We published a notice of intent to prepare an EIS for the proposed liquefied natural gas (LNG) deepwater port at 70 FR 33916, June 10, 2005. The proposed action requiring environmental review is the Federal licensing of the proposed deepwater port described in ‘‘Summary of the Application’’ below, which is reprinted from previous Federal Register notices in this docket. Alternatives to the Proposed Action The alternatives to licensing are: (1) Licensing with conditions (including conditions designed to mitigate environmental impact), and (2) denying the application, which for purposes of environmental review is the ‘‘no-action’’ alternative. These alternatives are more fully discussed in the DEIS. hsrobinson on PROD1PC70 with NOTICES Summary of the Application The application plan calls for the proposed deepwater port terminal to be located outside State waters in the Gulf of Mexico on the U.S. Outer Continental Shelf (OCS). Beacon Port would consist of a Main Terminal, Riser Platform, and connecting pipelines. The Main Terminal would be located approximately 50 miles (80 km) off the coast, East-Southeast of Galveston, TX (approximately 45 miles (72 km) South of High Island, TX) in OCS lease block High Island Area 27 (HIA 27). The Riser Platform would be located approximately 29 miles off the coast, South-Southeast of Johnson’s Bayou, LA (approximately 27 miles South of Holly Beach, LA) in OCS lease block West Cameron 167 (WC 167). Beacon Port would serve as an LNG receiving, storage, and regasification facility. The Main Terminal would be located in water depth of approximately 65 feet (20 m). The proposed Beacon Port Main Terminal would include: Two concrete Gravity Based Structures (GBS) that would contain the LNG storage tanks, LNG carrier berthing provisions, LNG unloading arms, low and high pressure pumps, vaporizers, metering, utility systems, general facilities and accommodations. The Main Terminal would be able to receive LNG carriers with cargo capacities of up to 253,000 cubic meters. LNG carrier arrival frequency would be planned to match specified terminal gas delivery rates. The terminal would have storage capacity for up to 300,000 cubic meters of LNG (150,000 cubic meters per tank) on site. Regasification of LNG would be accomplished through the use of open VerDate Aug<31>2005 14:30 Mar 03, 2006 Jkt 208001 rack vaporizers (ORVs). In normal operation, four pumps would operate with a combined total flow rate of approximately 167.5 million gallons of sea water per day (26,400 m3/hr). At peak operation, five pumps would operate with a combined total flow rate of approximately 203 million gallons of sea water per day (32,000 m3/hr). Beacon Port proposes the installation of approximately 46 miles of offshore natural gas transmission pipeline on the OCS. A 42-inch diameter pipeline would connect the Main Terminal with the Riser Platform. Three additional pipelines (24-inch, 20-inch, and 12.75inch diameter) are proposed to connect the Riser Platform with existing gas distribution pipelines in the West Cameron (WC) 167 OCS block. The deepwater port would be designed to handle an average delivery of approximately 1.5 billion standard cubic feet per day (Bscfd) with a peak delivery of approximately 1.8 Bscfd.
