Download as PDF 67424 Federal Register / Vol. 71, No. 224 / Tuesday, November 21, 2006 / Notices designed to accept, regasify, odorize and meter LNG from conventional LNG carriers and deliver it to the pipeline through Calypso’s unloading buoy system; and conventional LNG carriers. When empty the TRV would disconnect from the buoy and leave the port, followed by another full TRV that would arrive and connect to the buoy. The SRS would normally remain attached to its mooring buoy. To sustain continuous vaporization, the SRS’ cargo tanks would be refilled approximately every two (2) to four (4) days by standard LNG carriers drawn from the global fleet. The SRS would be capable of detaching from the buoy if threatened by a severe storm, such as a hurricane, and move under its own power to safety; then return and reconnect to the buoy and continue operations once the storm danger passed. Calypso would be capable of delivering natural gas in a continuous flow by having at least one TRV or SRS regasifying at all times. The system would be designed so that a TRV and SRS can be moored simultaneously for concurrent unloading of natural gas. Calypso would have an average throughput capacity of approximately 1.1 billion standard cubic feet per day and a peak delivery capacity of 1.9 Bcsfd. No onshore pipelines or LNG storage facilities are associated with the proposed deepwater port application. A shore based facility would be used to facilitate movement of personnel, equipment, supplies, and disposable materials between the port and shore. Construction of the deepwater port would be expected to take three (3) years; with startup of commercial operations following construction, 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. sroberts on PROD1PC70 with NOTICES Privacy Act Anyone is able to search the electronic form of all comments received into any of our dockets by the name of the individual submitting the comment (or signing the comment, if submitted on behalf of an association, business, labor union, etc.).
