[FR Doc. 2010–7730 Filed 4–5–10; 8:45 am] BILLING CODE 3810–FF–P DEPARTMENT OF ENERGY Hydrogen Energy California’s Integrated Gasification Combined Cycle Project, Kern County, CA— Notice of Intent To Prepare an Environmental Impact Statement and Notice of Potential Floodplain and Wetlands Involvement Department of Energy. Notice of intent and notice of potential floodplain and wetlands involvement. AGENCY: sroberts on DSKD5P82C1PROD with NOTICES ACTION: SUMMARY: The U.S. Department of Energy (DOE or the Department) announces its intent to prepare an Environmental Impact Statement (EIS) pursuant to the National Environmental Policy Act of 1969 (NEPA) (42 U.S.C. 4321 et seq.), the Council on Environmental Quality’s NEPA regulations (40 CFR parts 1500–1508), and DOE’s NEPA regulations (10 CFR part 1021) to assess the potential environmental impacts of providing financial assistance for the construction and operation of a project proposed by Hydrogen Energy California LLC (HECA). DOE selected this project for an award of financial assistance through a VerDate Nov<24>2008 16:37 Apr 05, 2010 Jkt 220001 competitive process under the Clean Coal Power Initiative (CCPI) program. The project proposed by HECA would demonstrate Integrated Gasification Combined Cycle (IGCC) technology with carbon capture in a new baseload electric generating plant in Kern County, California. The plant would use blends of coal and petroleum coke (petcoke) or petcoke alone as its feedstock, and would demonstrate carbon capture and sequestration on a commercial scale. The HECA project would gasify the coal and petcoke to produce synthesis gas (syngas), which would then be processed and purified to produce a hydrogen-rich fuel. The hydrogen would be used to power a combustion turbine, generating electricity while minimizing emissions of sulfur dioxide, nitrogen oxides, mercury, and particulates compared to conventional coal-fired power plants. In addition, the project would achieve a carbon dioxide (CO2) capture efficiency of approximately 90 percent at steady-state operation. The captured CO2 would be compressed and transported via pipeline to the adjacent Elk Hills Field (owned and operated by Occidental of Elk Hills, Inc.) for injection into deep underground oil and gas reservoirs for enhanced oil recovery (EOR) and geologic sequestration. The EIS will inform DOE’s decision on whether to provide financial assistance under its CCPI Program to the project proposed by HECA, which has an estimated capital cost of $2.3 billion. DOE’s financial assistance (or ‘‘cost share’’) would be limited to $308 million, about 11 percent of the project’s total cost. DOE’s financial assistance is also limited to certain aspects of the power plant, carbon capture, and sequestration. The EIS will evaluate the potential impacts of DOE’s proposed action (provision of financial assistance), the project proposed by HECA and any connected actions, and reasonable alternatives to DOE’s proposed action. The purposes of this Notice of Intent are to: (1) Inform the public about DOE’s proposed action and HECA’s proposed project; (2) announce the public scoping meeting; (3) solicit comments for DOE’s consideration regarding the scope and content of the EIS; (4) invite those agencies with jurisdiction by law or special expertise to be cooperating agencies in preparation of the EIS; and (5) provide notice that the proposed project may involve potential impacts to floodplains and wetlands. DOE does not have regulatory jurisdiction over the HECA project. Its decisions are limited to whether and PO 00000 Frm 00030 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 17397 under what circumstances it would provide financial assistance to the project. There are a number of state and federal agencies that do have regulatory authority over the project; one of them is the California Energy Commission (CEC), which is responsible for power plant licensing under the WarrenAlquist Act (Cal. Pub. Res. Code section 25500 et seq.). This licensing process, which will consider all relevant environmental aspects of HECA’s proposed project and related facilities, is defined by California law, and under state law is certified as fulfilling the requirements of the California Environmental Quality Act (CEQA; Cal. Pub. Res. Code section 21000 et seq.). Under this certified process, CEC holds public hearings, makes a final staff assessment, conducts evidentiary hearings, and issues a decision based on the hearing record, which includes the staff’s and other parties’ assessments. Through this process, the CEC staff will conduct an independent analysis of the proposed project and prepare an independent assessment of its potential environmental impacts, conditions of certification (e.g. mitigation measures), and alternatives. The staff will consult with interested Native American tribes and local, regional, state, and federal agencies, and CEC will coordinate its environmental review with other agencies, including the California Department of Oil, Gas and Geothermal Resources (DOGGR). DOE understands that, pursuant to California law and a grant of primacy from the United States Environmental Protection Agency regarding Class II wells under section 1425 of the Safe Drinking Water Act, DOGGR has responsibility for permitting EOR injection and extraction wells, and is likely to have the regulatory lead for the CO2 sequestration aspects of the proposed project, and would impose permit conditions on these aspects of the project that are needed to ensure the HECA project’s compliance with California’s requirements regarding CO2 emissions from power plants.1 DOE intends to coordinate its NEPA review of the HECA project with the environmental review conducted by CEC as lead agency under CEQA. It will work closely with CEC throughout its regulatory processes in order to integrate the NEPA and CEQA processes in an efficient and expeditious manner. In particular, DOE will work with CEC 1 DOE anticipates that, pursuant to Cal. Pub. Res. Code section 21000 et seq., California agencies will impose mitigation measures to address potential impacts and project design elements to verify the sequestration of CO2 injected for EOR.
