Pursuant to section 157.9 of the Commission’s rules, a Notice of Schedule for the Environmental Review of the TEAM 2012 Project was issued on May 5, 2011. Based on Texas Eastern’s filing of an amendment to its application, the Commission staff is no longer able to issue its environmental assessment (EA) on July 14, 2011 as identified in the May 5, 2011 Notice of Schedule. The Commission staff will issue a Revised Notice of Schedule for Environmental Review within 90 days of this Notice. The Revised Notice of Schedule will identify the anticipated issuance date of the Commission staff’s EA and will serve to notify agencies issuing Federal authorizations of the requirement to complete all necessary reviews and to reach a final decision on a request for a Federal authorization within 90 days of the issuance of the EA. There are two ways to become involved in the Commission’s review of this project. First, any person wishing to obtain legal status by becoming a party to the proceedings for this project should, on or before the comment date stated below, file with the Federal Energy Regulatory Commission, 888 First Street, NE., Washington, DC 20426, a motion to intervene in accordance with the requirements of the Commission’s Rules of Practice and Procedure (18 CFR 385.214 or 385.211) and the Regulations under the NGA (18 CFR 157.10). A person obtaining party status will be placed on the service list maintained by the Secretary of the Commission and will receive copies of all documents filed by the applicant and by all other parties. A party must submit 7 copies of filings made with the Commission and must mail a copy to the applicant and to every other party in the proceeding. Only parties to the proceeding can ask for court review of Commission orders in the proceeding. However, a person does not have to intervene in order to have comments considered. The second way to participate is by filing with the Secretary of the Commission, as soon as possible, an original and two copies of comments in support of or in opposition to this project. The Commission will consider these comments in determining the appropriate action to be taken, but the filing of a comment alone will not serve to make the filer a party to the proceeding. The Commission’s rules require that persons filing comments in opposition to the project provide copies of their protests only to E:\FR\FM\30JNN1.SGM 30JNN1
