Project Background On October 16, 2013 the Commission’s environmental staff approved Sabal Trail’s request to use the Commission Pre-Filing Process for the Project. The purpose of the Pre-Filing Process is to encourage the early involvement of interested stakeholders to identify and resolve project-related issues before an application is filed with the Commission. On February 18, 2014 the Commission issued a Notice of Intent to Prepare an Environmental Impact Statement for the Planned Southeast Market Pipelines Project, Request for Comments on Environmental Issues, and Notice of Public Scoping Meetings. During the course of the Pre-Filing Process, numerous concerns have been expressed about the potential environmental impacts of the Project. Based on the merits of these comments and to ensure that public concerns are fully considered during the Pre-Filing Process, additional alternatives have been identified and are being considered. Project Summary As noted previously, the Project is part of the SMP Project and will be reviewed concurrently along with the Florida Southeast Connection Project and the Hillabee Expansion Project. The SMP Project would involve the construction and operation of over 650 miles of interstate natural gas transmission pipeline and associated facilities in Alabama, Georgia, and Florida. The Project would connect with the Hillabee Expansion Project in Alabama, and the Florida Southeast Connection Project in Florida. The Sabal Trail portion of the SMP Project would involve the construction and operation of approximately 460 miles of 36-inch-diameter natural gas transmission pipeline beginning in Tallapoosa County, Alabama and ending in Osceola County, Florida. Sabal Trail also plans to construct and operate approximately 14 miles of 36-inchdiameter natural gas transmission pipeline in Osceola and Orange Counties, Florida (Hunters Creek Line) and approximately 24 miles of 24-inchdiameter natural gas transmission E:\FR\FM\22OCN1.SGM 22OCN1
