(Elba Express) in the abovereferenced dockets. Elba Express requests authorization to construct new natural gas facilities in Hart County, Georgia. The Hartwell Compressor Station Project would provide up to 220 million cubic feet per day of natural gas transportation capacity. The EA assesses the potential environmental effects of the construction and operation of the Hartwell Compressor Station Project in accordance with the requirements of the National Environmental Policy Act (NEPA). The FERC staff concludes that approval of the proposed project, with appropriate mitigating measures, would not constitute a major federal action significantly affecting the quality of the human environment. Elba Express seeks to amend its authorization in Docket No. CP06–471 for the Elba Express Pipeline Project by proposing to move the previously approved compressor station in Jenkins County, Georgia. Elba Express now proposes to construct the 10,000horsepower Hartwell Compressor Station on a 30.0-acre site at approximate milepost 186 on Elba Express’ pipeline in Hart County, Georgia.
