The staff of the Federal Energy Regulatory Commission (FERC or VerDate Aug<31>2005 16:52 Jun 27, 2006 Jkt 208001 Commission) has prepared this Environmental Assessment (EA) for the construction and operation of the expansion of the Freeport liquefied natural gas (LNG) import terminal (referred to as the Freeport LNG Phase II Project or Project) as proposed by Freeport LNG Development, L.P. (Freeport) in the above-referenced docket. The EA was prepared to satisfy the requirements of the National Environmental Policy Act (NEPA). The staff concludes that approval of the Freeport LNG Phase II Project, with appropriate mitigating measures as recommended, would not constitute a major Federal action significantly affecting the quality of the human environment. The EA also contains our final General Conformity Determination. The EA assesses the potential environmental effects of the construction and operation of the proposed expansion of the Freeport LNG terminal in Brazoria County, Texas including the construction of: • An additional LNG ship berth and associated unloading facilities that would have the capacity to unload up to 200 LNG ships per year; • Additional vaporizers and associated systems, including an air tower; and • An additional LNG storage tank and associated systems. The purpose of the Project is to provide the facilities necessary for shippers, including MC Global Gas Corporation (a subsidiary of Mitsubishi Corporation [Mitsubishi]), to deliver up to 2.5 Mcfd of natural gas derived from LNG to the Texas intrastate pipeline system in Stratton Ridge. Delivery of gas to the Stratton Ridge area would allow to gas to be delivered to the intrastate market or potentially transported to the interstate pipeline system for delivery elsewhere. The EA has been placed in the public files of the FERC. A limited number of copies of the EA are available for distribution and public inspection at: Federal Energy Regulatory Commission, Public Reference Room, 888 First Street, NE., Room 2A, Washington, DC 20426.
