The Commission will use this EA in its decision-making process to determine whether the project is in the public convenience and necessity. This notice announces the opening of the scoping process the Commission will use to gather input from the public and interested agencies on the project. Your input will help the Commission staff determine what issues they need to evaluate in the EA. Please note that the scoping period will close on August 10, 2012. You may submit comments in written form or verbally. Further details on how to submit written comments are in the Public Participation section of this PO 00000 Frm 00039 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 41779 notice.

This notice is being sent to the Commission’s current environmental mailing list for this project. State and local government representatives should notify their constituents of this planned project and encourage them to comment on their areas of concern. A fact sheet prepared by the FERC entitled ‘‘An Interstate Natural Gas Facility On My Land? What Do I Need To Know?’’ is available for viewing on the FERC Web site (www.ferc.gov). This fact sheet addresses a number of typically-asked questions, including the use of eminent domain and how to participate in the Commission’s proceedings. Summary of the Planned Project Millennium plans to construct and operate a 15,900 horsepower compressor station and associated appurtenant facilities in the Town of Hancock, Delaware County, New York. The Hancock Compressor Project would provide about 107,500 dekatherms of natural gas per day (Dth/d) to Algonquin Gas Transmission, LLC located in Ramapo, New York and points further east. The Project would also deliver about 115,000 Dth/d of natural gas from an interconnect with Laser Gathering System to an existing interconnect with Columbia Gas Transmission, L.L.C. at Wagoner. The planned facilities would provide bi-directional gas flow capabilities between Millennium’s existing compressor station in Corning, New York and the planned Hancock Compressor Station. According to Millennium, its project would enable Millennium to meet the demands of existing customers who are producing natural gas near its existing natural gas system. The Hancock Compressor Project would consist of the following facilities: • One 15,900-horsepower natural gasfired compressor unit at the new Hancock Compressor Station; • About 260 feet of 36-inch-diameter pipeline for suction from the existing Millennium mainline and about 365 feet of 36-inch-diameter pipeline for discharge to the existing Millennium mainline; E:\FR\FM\16JYN1.SGM 16JYN1
