[FR Doc. 2013–30834 Filed 12–24–13; 8:45 am] BILLING CODE 6717–01–P DEPARTMENT OF ENERGY Federal Energy Regulatory Commission [Docket No. CP14–13–000] Houston Pipe Line Company, LP; Notice of Intent to Prepare an Environmental Assessment for the Proposed 24-Inch Border Crossing Project and Request for Comments on Environmental Issues The staff of the Federal Energy Regulatory Commission (FERC or Commission) will prepare an environmental assessment (EA) that will discuss the environmental impacts of the 24-Inch Border Crossing Project (Project) involving construction and operation of border crossing facilities at the international border between Mexico and the United States in Hidalgo County, Texas by Houston Pipe Line Company, LP (HPL). 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 January 17, 2014. 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 notice. This notice is being sent to the Commission’s current environmental mailing list for the Project. State and local government representatives should notify their constituents of this planned project and encourage them to comment on their areas of concern. If you are a landowner receiving this notice, a pipeline company representative may contact you about the acquisition of an easement to construct, operate, and maintain the planned facilities. The company would seek to negotiate a mutually acceptable agreement. However, if the Commission approves the Project, that approval conveys with it the right of eminent domain. Therefore, if easement negotiations fail to produce an PO 00000 Frm 00026 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 agreement, the pipeline company could initiate condemnation proceedings where compensation would be determined in accordance with state law. HPL 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 HPL proposes to construct a new border crossing at the international boundary between the United States and Mexico in Hidalgo County, Texas. The Project would consist of approximately 703 feet of 24-inch-diameter natural gas pipeline, directionally drilled underneath the Rio Grande River in Hidalgo County, Texas. The new pipeline would have a design capacity of approximately 140 million cubic feet per day (Mmcf/d) and a maximum allowable operating pressure of 1,300 pounds per square inch gauge designed to transport natural gas to a new delivery interconnect with HPL’s nonjurisdictional intrastate pipeline and to a new interconnection with the Pemex Pipeline at the United States-Mexico border. The general location of the Project is shown in Appendix 1. Land Requirements for Construction Construction of the planned facilities would require ground disturbance of approximately 4.1 acres of land for temporary workspace. Following construction, HPL would maintain 0.81 acre for operation of the Project and the remaining 3.3 acres would be revegetated. In its application, HPL indicates that it would also construct pipeline facilities that are not under the jurisdiction of the FERC. Although FERC doesn’t have the regulatory authority to modify or deny the construction of these facilities, we will disclose available information regarding the construction impacts in our EA. These facilities would include approximately 23 miles of 24-inch1 The appendices referenced in this notice will not appear in the Federal Register. Copies of the appendices were sent to all those receiving this notice in the mail and are available at www.ferc.gov using the link called ‘‘eLibrary’’ or from the Commission’s Public Reference Room, 888 First Street NE., Washington, DC 20426, or call (202) 502–8371.
