Agency Information Collection Activities: Proposed Collection Renewal; Comment Request, 38095-38096 [2010-16030]

Download as PDF Federal Register / Vol. 75, No. 126 / Thursday, July 1, 2010 / Notices (b) During the summer months, the Kenai LNG Facility’s base level of demand will ensure that production from natural gas wells are not curtailed or shut-in, thereby protecting reserves and well deliverability to serve utility demand during the colder months. Third, the Applicants maintain that in the longer term, the maintenance of the Kenai LNG Facility creates options for future uses that would enhance natural gas supplies for local consumption, including possible retrofitting of the facility to provide regasification capacity so that it could function as a storage facility; conversion into an import and LNG regasification terminal; and use of the existing terminal for exports to support the economic viability of a ‘‘bullet line’’ from Alaska’s North Slope. Fourth, the Applicants submit that a number of studies of natural gas reserves support the conclusion that there are sufficient supplies to satisfy local demand and the proposed export authorization. Fifth, with the recent execution of two natural gas supply contracts with local utilities, the Applicants maintain that virtually all of the local utilities’ projected gas needs through the term of the requested authorization will be satisfied; and Applicants, as suppliers to these utilities, will take their supply obligations into account in determining the extent to which to use their requested export authorization. Sixth, the Applicants contend that the Kenai LNG Facility provides local economic benefits, including as an employer and as a source of royalties and taxes for the State of Alaska and the Kenai Peninsula Borough. Request for Expedited Action Applicants request that FE act upon their application as expeditiously as possible, preferably within 90 days. jlentini on DSKJ8SOYB1PROD with NOTICES Environmental Impact Applicants state that approval of the requested export authorization is not a major Federal action significantly affecting the quality of the human environment within the meaning of the National Environmental Policy Act of 1969, 42 U.S.C. 4321 et seq., and no environmental impact statement or environmental assessment is required. Applicants state that the proposed export of LNG would not require any changes to the Kenai LNG Facility. Applicants state that the LNG manufacturing and storage facilities that will be utilized during the blanket authorization already exist and have been operated safely without major VerDate Mar<15>2010 16:02 Jun 30, 2010 Jkt 220001 disruption of supply or accident from their startup in 1969. DOE/FE Evaluation This export application will be reviewed pursuant to section 3 of the NGA, as amended, and the authority contained in DOE Delegation Order No. 00–002.00I (Nov. 10, 2009) and DOE Redelegation Order No. 00–002.04D (Nov. 6, 2007). In reviewing this LNG export application, DOE will consider domestic need for the gas, as well as any other issues determined to be appropriate, including whether the arrangement is consistent with DOE’s policy of promoting competition in the marketplace by allowing commercial parties to freely negotiate their own trade arrangements. Parties that may oppose this application should comment in their responses on these issues. The National Environmental Policy Act (NEPA), 42 U.S.C. 4321 et seq., requires DOE to give appropriate consideration to the environmental effects of its proposed decisions. No final decision will be issued in this proceeding until DOE has met its NEPA responsibilities. Public Comment Procedures In response to this notice, any person may file a protest, motion to intervene, or notice of intervention and written comments, as provided in DOE’s regulations at 10 CFR 590.301, et seq. Any person wishing to become a party to the proceeding and to have their written comments considered as a basis for any decision on the application must file a motion to intervene or notice of intervention, as applicable. The filing of a protest with respect to the application will not serve to make the protestant a party to the proceeding, although protests and comments received from persons who are not parties will be considered in determining the appropriate action to be taken on the application. All protests, motions to intervene, notices of intervention, and written comments must meet the requirements specified by the regulations in 10 CFR part 590. Protests, motions to intervene, notices of intervention, requests for additional procedures, and written comments shall be filed with the Office of Oil and Gas Global Security and Supply at the address listed above. A decisional record on the application will be developed through responses to this notice by parties, including the parties’ written comments and replies thereto. Additional procedures will be used as necessary to achieve a complete understanding of the facts and issues. A PO 00000 Frm 00024 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 38095 party seeking intervention may request that additional procedures be provided, such as additional written comments, an oral presentation, a conference, or trialtype hearing. Any request to file additional written comments should explain why they are necessary. Any request for an oral presentation should identify the substantial question of fact, law, or policy at issue, show that it is material and relevant to a decision in the proceeding, and demonstrate why an oral presentation is needed. Any request for a conference should demonstrate why the conference would materially advance the proceeding. Any request for a trial-type hearing must show that there are factual issues genuinely in dispute that are relevant and material to a decision and that a trial-type hearing is necessary for a full and true disclosure of the facts. If an additional procedure is scheduled, notice will be provided to all parties. If no party requests additional procedures, a final Opinion and Order may be issued based on the official record, including the application and responses filed by parties pursuant to this notice, in accordance with 10 CFR 590.316. The application filed by Applicants is available for inspection and copying in the Office of Oil and Gas Global Security and Supply docket room, 3E– 042, 1000 Independence Avenue, SW., Washington, DC 20585.
