(Southern Star) in Logan and Oklahoma Counties, Oklahoma. 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 VerDate Mar<15>2010 17:49 Jul 24, 2012 Jkt 226001 scoping period will close on August 17, 2012. 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 proposed project and encourage them to comment on their areas of concern. Southern Star provided landowners with a fact sheet prepared by the FERC entitled ‘‘An Interstate Natural Gas Facility On My Land? What Do I Need To Know?’’. 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. It is also available for viewing on the FERC Web site (www.ferc.gov). Summary of the Proposed Project Southern Star proposes to abandon 16.14 miles of 20-inch-diameter natural gas pipeline, known as Line V, in Logan and Oklahoma Counties, Oklahoma. Southern Star states that due to the age of Line V and the use of coupled pipe, Line V cannot meet the inspection requirement of the U.S. Department of Transportation’s Pipeline and Hazardous Materials Safety Administration. Line V has been looped with a 20-inch-diameter line and no longer provides service to domestic customers.1 Southern Star would abandon in-place approximately 13.18 miles of pipe, and would abandon by removal the remaining 2.96 miles of pipe as requested by landowners. Abandonment of the proposed facilities would disturb about 49 acres of land during construction for pipeline removal, extra workspace, access roads, and staging areas. The general location of the project facilities is shown in appendix 1.2 The EA Process The National Environmental Policy Act (NEPA) requires the Commission to take into account the environmental impacts that could result from an action whenever it considers the issuance of a Certificate of Public Convenience and Necessity.

By this notice, the Commission requests public comments on the scope of the issues to address in the EA. We will consider all filed comments during the preparation of the EA. In the EA we will discuss impacts that could occur as a result of the construction and operation of the proposed project under these general headings: • Geology and soils; • Land use; • Water resources, fisheries, and wetlands; • Cultural resources; • Vegetation and wildlife; • Air quality and noise; • Endangered and threatened species; and • Public safety. We will also evaluate reasonable alternatives to the proposed project or portions of the project, and make recommendations on how to lessen or avoid impacts on the various resource areas. The EA will present our independent analysis of the issues. The EA will be available in the public record through eLibrary. Depending on the comments received during the scoping process, we may also publish and distribute the EA to the public for an allotted comment period. We will consider all comments on the EA before making our recommendations to the Commission. To ensure we have the opportunity to consider and address your comments, please carefully follow the instructions in the Public Participation section beginning on page 4.
