Corpus Christi Liquefaction, LLC, Cheniere Corpus Christi 
Pipeline, LP; Notice of Availability of the Final Environmental Impact 
Statement for the Proposed Corpus Christi Lng Project

    The staff of the Federal Energy Regulatory Commission (FERC or 
Commission) has prepared a final environmental impact statement (EIS) 
for the Corpus Christi LNG Project (Project), proposed by Corpus 
Christi Liquefaction, LLC and Cheniere Corpus Christi Pipeline, LP 
(collectively Cheniere) in the above-referenced dockets. Cheniere 
requests authorization to construct and operate the facilities 
necessary to import, export, store, vaporize, and liquefy natural gas 
and deliver the resulting product either into existing interstate and 
intrastate natural gas pipelines in the Corpus Christi area, or export 
liquefied natural gas (LNG) elsewhere. The Project liquefaction 
facilities would enable Cheniere to export LNG equivalent to 
approximately 2.1 billion standard cubic feet (Bscf) per day of natural 
gas, and the vaporization facilities would enable Cheniere to sendout 
approximately 400 million standard cubic feet (MMscf) per day of 
natural gas into its proposed pipeline system.

    The final EIS assesses the potential environmental effects of the 
construction and operation of the Project in accordance with the 
requirements of the National Environmental Policy Act (NEPA). The FERC 
staff concludes that approval of the proposed Project, with the 
mitigation measures recommended in the EIS, would ensure that impacts 
in the Project area would be avoided or minimized and would not be 
significant. Construction and operation of the Project would result in 
mostly temporary and short-term environmental impacts; however, some 
long-term and permanent environmental impacts would occur.
    The U.S. Army Corps of Engineers (COE), U.S. Coast Guard, U.S. 
Department of Energy (DOE), U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA), 
and U.S. Department of Transportation (DOT) participated as cooperating 
agencies in the preparation of the EIS. Cooperating agencies have 
jurisdiction by law or special expertise with respect to resources 
potentially affected by the proposal and participate in the NEPA 
analysis. The U.S. Coast Guard, EPA, and DOT cooperated in the 
preparation of this EIS because of their special expertise with respect 
to resources potentially affected by the proposal.
    Although the cooperating agencies provide input to the conclusions 
and recommendations presented in the final EIS, the agencies will 
present their own conclusions and recommendations in their respective 
Records of Decision or determinations for the Project.
    The final EIS addresses the potential environmental effects of the 
construction and operation of the following Project facilities:
     Liquefaction facilities, including three liquefaction 
trains each capable of liquefying approximately 700 MMscf per day of 
natural gas;
     vaporization facilities, including two trains of ambient 
air vaporizers and send out pumps each capable of vaporizing sufficient 
LNG volume for each to send out approximately 200 MMscf per day of 
natural gas;
     LNG storage facilities, including three LNG storage tanks 
each capable of storing LNG equivalent to approximately 3.4 Bscf of 
natural gas;
     marine terminal with two LNG carrier berths;
     23 miles of 48-inch-diameter pipeline;
     one 41,000 horsepower compressor station and one 12,260 
horsepower compressor station; and
     ancillary facilities.
    The FERC staff mailed copies of the final EIS to federal, state, 
and local government representatives and agencies; elected officials; 
environmental and public interest groups; Native American tribes; 
potentially affected landowners and other interested individuals and 
groups; newspapers and libraries in the Project area; and parties to 
this proceeding. Everyone on our environmental mailing list will 
receive a CD version of the final EIS. In addition, the final EIS is 
available for public viewing on the FERC's Web site (www.ferc.gov) 
using the eLibrary link. A limited number of copies are available for 
distribution and public inspection at: Federal Energy Regulatory 
Commission, Public Reference Room, 888 First Street NE., Room 2A, 
Washington, DC 20426, (202) 502-8371.
