Notice of Technical Workshop and Seminar-Tuesday, July 11, 2006, 26606-26607 [E6-6790]

Download as PDF 26606 Federal Register / Vol. 71, No. 87 / Friday, May 5, 2006 / Notices cchase on PROD1PC60 with NOTICES milestones, including environmental review. The Maritime Administrator’s decision, and other key documents, will be filed in the public docket. At least one public hearing must take place in each adjacent coastal State. For purposes of the Act, Alabama is the adjacent coastal State for this application. Other States can apply for adjacent coastal State status in accordance with 33 U.S.C. 1508 (a)(2). Summary of the Application TORP Terminal LP, proposes to construct, own, and operate a deepwater port, named Bienville Offshore Energy Terminal (BOET), in the Federal waters of the Outer Continental Shelf on Main Pass block MP 258, approximately 63 miles south of Mobile Point, Alabama, in a water depth of approximately 425 feet. The BOET Deepwater Port would be capable of mooring two LNG carriers of up to approximately 250,000 cubic meter capacity by means of two Single Anchor Leg Moorings (SALMs). The LNG carriers would be off loaded one at a time to HiLoad floating regasification facilities, which use four submerged shell-and-tube heat exchangers to vaporize the LNG before sending it via 14-inch diameter flexible risers to a Pipeline End Manifold (PLEM) on the seafloor, then through 30-inch diameter pipeline to the support platform, where the gas will be metered and further sent out via interconnecting pipelines to four existing pipelines (Dauphin Island Gathering System Feedline, Transco Feedline, Destin Feedline, and Viosca Knoll Gathering System Feedline). The major fixed components of the proposed deepwater port would be the Support Platform, two PLEMs with ancillary risers and terminal pipelines, HiLoad parking line pilings, and approximately 25 miles of new pipeline. BOET will have an average throughput capacity of 1.2 billion standard cubic feet per day (Bcsfd). No onshore pipelines or LNG storage facilities are associated with the proposed deepwater port application. A shore based facility will be used to facilitate movement of personnel, equipment, supplies, and disposable materials between the Terminal and shore. Construction of the deepwater port would be expected to take 30 months; with startup of commercial operations in the latter half of 2009, should a license be issued. The deepwater port would be designed, constructed and operated in accordance with applicable codes and standards and would have an expected operating life of approximately 25 years.
