We encourage government representatives to notify their constituents of this proposed project and encourage them to comment on their areas of concern. Summary of the Proposed Project Kinder Morgan proposes to construct, operate and maintain approximately 133 miles of natural gas pipeline in Cameron, Calcasieu, Jefferson Davis, Acadia and Evangeline Parishes, Louisiana. According to Kinder Morgan, the purpose of this project is to provide an additional source of long-term, competitively priced natural gas from the Sabine Pass Liquefied Natural Gas (LNG) Terminal to intrastate and interstate natural gas markets. Kinder Morgan has stated that this project is necessary to help meet the growing imbalance between national supply and demand. Specifically, Kinder Morgan is proposing to construct, operate and maintain: • 130 miles of 42-inch-diameter pipeline beginning within the Sabine Pass LNG Terminal in Cameron Parish and extending northward and easterly through Calcasieu, Jefferson Davis and Acadia Parishes until it connects with an existing Columbia Gulf Transmission interstate pipeline in Evangeline Parish, Louisiana. • 1 mile of 36-inch-diameter bidirectional pipeline beginning within the Sabine Pass LNG Terminal and extending northward until it connects with the existing Natural Gas Pipeline Company of America pipeline approximately one mile north of the LNG terminal in Cameron Parish, Louisiana. • 2.2 miles of 24-inch-diameter pipeline extending eastwardly from approximately Milepost 109 of the 130mile leg described above until it connects with the existing Florida Gas Transmission Company’s Compressor Station #7 near the town of Williams in Acadia Parish, Louisiana. • Associated mainline block valves, metering, tie-in and pigging facilities. The Kinder Morgan Pipeline would deliver approximately 3.4 million decatherms (Dth) of natural gas per day and would connect with fourteen intrastate and interstate pipeline facilities. No compressor stations would be included as part of the project. A general location of the proposed pipeline is provided in Appendix 1.2 E:\FR\FM\30MRN1.SGM 30MRN1
