Carib also states that as a growing company, it will also be creating jobs as its marketing and sale of LNG to new markets increases its need for additional sales and administrative staff. Carib states that because the requested exports will have minimal effect on domestic natural gas supply based on current projections, and the DOE/FE has retained the ability to address changes in the domestic gas supply, if, in the future, there are unexpected changed circumstances, granting this Application for the requested term is consistent with the public interest. Environmental Impact Carib states that no modifications to the Facility would be required in order for it to export LNG, and accordingly, under Categorical Exclusion B5.7 of the National Environmental Policy Act (NEPA), approval of this Application would not constitute a federal action significantly affecting the human environment within the meaning of NEPA. sroberts on DSK5SPTVN1PROD with NOTICES DOE/FE Evaluation This export Application will be reviewed pursuant to section 3(a) of the NGA, as amended, and the authority contained in DOE Delegation Order No. 00–002.00L (April 29, 2011) and DOE Redelegation Order No. 00–002.04E (April 29, 2011). In reviewing this LNG export Application, DOE will consider domestic need for the natural 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. NEPA 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.
