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.

Persons who wish to comment only on the environmental review of this project should submit an original and two copies of their comments to the Secretary of the Commission. Environmental commenters will be placed on the Commission’s environmental mailing list, will receive copies of the environmental documents, and will be notified of meetings associated with the Commission’s environmental review process.

liquefied natural gas (LNG) import terminal on Quintana Island 
(Terminal). The main liquefaction equipment will consist of three 
liquefaction trains, each capable of producing a nominal 4.4 million 
metric tons of LNG per annum (mtpa), for a total capacity of 13.2 mtpa. 
In addition, Freeport also proposes to construct natural gas 
pretreatment facilities, located approximately 2.5 miles north of the

    On January 5, 2011, the Commission staff granted Freeport's request 
to use the pre-filing process and assigned Docket No. PF11-2-000 to 
staff activities involving the proposed natural gas liquefaction and
