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 PO 00000 Frm 00025 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 18901 evaluate in the EA. Please note that the scoping period will close on April 28, 2014. 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. 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 proposed 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 agreement, the pipeline company could initiate condemnation proceedings where compensation would be determined in accordance with state law. SESH 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 SESH requests approval to construct and operate a new compressor station, associated connecting piping, and appurtenant facilities in Copiah County, Mississippi. The SESH Expansion Project would create about 25,000 dekatherms per day (Dth/d) of new capacity on the SESH mainline as well as change the mainline design to reflect a total 45,000 Dth/d increase in capacity. The SESH Expansion Project would consist of the following facilities: • New compressor facilities (the ‘‘Dentville Compressor Station’’) at the SESH/Texas Eastern Transmission, LP Interconnect, which include a single 8,000 horsepower natural gas-fired reciprocating engine compressor package; • approximately 4,000 feet of new 20inch-diameter connecting piping and related appurtenances from the proposed Dentville Compressor Station site to an existing metering and regulating (M&R) station on the SESH mainline at milepost 73.05 and southsouthwest of the Dentville Compressor Station site; and E:\FR\FM\04APN1.SGM 04APN1 18902 Federal Register / Vol. 79, No. 65 / Friday, April 4, 2014 / Notices • modifications at the existing M&R station to accommodate the proposed connecting piping tie-in as well as install a launcher and receiver facility. The general location of the project facilities is shown in appendix 1.1 Land Requirements for Construction Construction of the proposed facilities would disturb about 32.4 acres of land for the aboveground facilities and the pipeline. Following construction, SESH would maintain about 23.5 acres for permanent operation of the project’s facilities; the remaining acreage would be restored and revert to former uses. The EA Process mstockstill on DSK4VPTVN1PROD with NOTICES 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.

[Docket No. CP14-87-000]


Southeast Supply Header, LLC; Notice of Intent To Prepare an 
Environmental Assessment for the Proposed SESH Expansion 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 SESH Expansion Project 
involving construction and operation of facilities by Southeast Supply 
Header, LLC (SESH) in Copiah County, Mississippi. 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 April 28, 2014.
    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.
    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 proposed 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 agreement, the pipeline company could initiate condemnation 
proceedings where compensation would be determined in accordance with 
state law.
    SESH 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

    SESH requests approval to construct and operate a new compressor 
station, associated connecting piping, and appurtenant facilities in 
Copiah County, Mississippi. The SESH Expansion Project would create 
about 25,000 dekatherms per day (Dth/d) of new capacity on the SESH 
mainline as well as change the mainline design to reflect a total 
45,000 Dth/d increase in capacity.
    The SESH Expansion Project would consist of the following 
facilities:
     New compressor facilities (the ``Dentville Compressor 
Station'') at the SESH/Texas Eastern Transmission, LP Interconnect, 
which include a single 8,000 horsepower natural gas-fired reciprocating 
engine compressor package;
     approximately 4,000 feet of new 20-inch-diameter 
connecting piping and related appurtenances from the proposed Dentville 
Compressor Station site to an existing metering and regulating (M&R) 
station on the SESH mainline at milepost 73.05 and south-southwest of 
the Dentville Compressor Station site; and

[[Page 18902]]

     modifications at the existing M&R station to accommodate 
the proposed connecting piping tie-in as well as install a launcher and 
receiver facility.
    The general location of the project facilities is shown in appendix 
1.\1\
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

    \1\ The appendices referenced in this notice will not appear in 
the Federal Register. Copies of 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. For instructions on connecting to eLibrary, refer to 
the last page of this notice.
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

Land Requirements for Construction

    Construction of the proposed facilities would disturb about 32.4 
acres of land for the aboveground facilities and the pipeline. 
Following construction, SESH would maintain about 23.5 acres for 
permanent operation of the project's facilities; the remaining acreage 
would be restored and revert to former uses.

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. NEPA also requires us 
\2\ to discover and address concerns the public may have about 
proposals. This process is referred to as ``scoping.'' The main goal of 
the scoping process is to focus the analysis in the EA on the important 
environmental issues. 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.
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

    \2\ ``We,'' ``us,'' and ``our'' refer to the environmental staff 
of the Commission's Office of Energy Projects.
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

    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, recreation, and aesthetics;
     water resources and wetlands;
     cultural resources;
     vegetation, fisheries, 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 below.
    With this notice, we are asking agencies with jurisdiction by law 
and/or special expertise with respect to the environmental issues of

access to the texts of formal documents issued by the Commission, such 
as orders, notices, and rulemakings.
    In addition, the Commission now offers a free service called 
eSubscription which allows you to keep track of all formal issuances 
and submittals in specific dockets. This can reduce the amount of time 
you spend researching proceedings by automatically providing you with 
notification of these filings, document summaries, and direct links to 
the documents. Go to www.ferc.gov/esubscribenow.htm.
    Finally, public meetings or site visits will be posted on the 
Commission's calendar located at www.ferc.gov/EventCalendar/EventsList.aspx along with other related information.

    Dated: March 28, 2014.
