Becoming an Intervenor In addition to involvement in the EA scoping process, you may want to become an ‘‘intervenor’’ which is an official party to the Commission’s proceeding. Intervenors play a more formal role in the process and are able to file briefs, appear at hearings, and be heard by the courts if they choose to appeal the Commission’s final ruling. An intervenor formally participates in the proceeding by filing a request to intervene. Instructions for becoming an intervenor are in the User’s Guide under the ‘‘e-filing’’ link on the Commission’s Web site.

Cheniere requests authorization to construct a new compressor station and modify existing metering facilities in Beauregard Parish, Louisiana, and to construct miscellaneous facilities at the existing Sabine Pass Liquefied Natural Gas (SPLNG) Terminal in Cameron Parish, Louisiana. The Creole Trail Expansion Project would enable bi-directional gas flow on the Creole Trail Pipeline system and allow for the delivery of gas to the PO 00000 Frm 00025 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 SPLNG Terminal. The Creole Trail Expansion Project would create 1,530,000 dekatherms per day of new firm reverse flow capacity. The EA assesses the potential environmental effects of the construction and operation of the Creole Trail Expansion Project in accordance with the requirements of the National Environmental Policy Act. 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. The proposed Creole Trail Expansion Project includes the following facilities: • A new 53,125-horsepower compressor station (Gillis Compressor Station); • Reconfiguration of three existing meter and regulation stations to allow bi-directional flow and increased capacity; • Approximately 200 feet of 42-inchdiameter pipeline from the existing mainline pipeline into the existing SPLNG Terminal; and • A pig 1 trap and associated valves at the SPLNG Terminal.
