[FR Doc. 2014–29526 Filed 12–16–14; 8:45 am] BILLING CODE 6717–01–P DEPARTMENT OF ENERGY Federal Energy Regulatory Commission [Docket No. CP14–70–000] mstockstill on DSK4VPTVN1PROD with NOTICES National Fuel Gas Supply Corporation; Notice of Availability of the Environmental Assessment for the Proposed West Side Expansion and Modernization Project The staff of the Federal Energy Regulatory Commission (FERC or Commission) has prepared an environmental assessment (EA) for the West Side Expansion and Modernization Project (Project), proposed by National Fuel Gas Supply Corporation (National Fuel) in the above-referenced docket. National Fuel requests authorization to construct and operate natural gas pipeline facilities in Washington, Allegheny, Beaver, Venango, and Mercer Counties, Pennsylvania to provide incremental delivery of about 175,000 dekatherms per day of natural gas. The EA assesses the potential environmental effects of the construction and operation of the Project in accordance with the requirements of the National Environmental Policy Act. The FERC VerDate Sep<11>2014 19:49 Dec 16, 2014 Jkt 235001 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 Project would replace about 23 miles of the existing 20-inchdiameter Line N (referred to as Sections 1, 2, and 3) which were built in 1947, with new 24-inch-diameter pipeline located in Washington, Allegheny, and Beaver Counties. The replacement section is proposed to be constructed at an approximately 25-foot offset from the existing pipeline where feasible. The Project also consists of the installation of additional compression at the existing Mercer Compressor Station in Mercer County and miscellaneous piping modifications at the existing Henderson Compressor Station in Venango County. The modifications at the Henderson Compressor Station are necessary to meet the changing pipeline operating conditions with the addition of the new service. National Fuel currently owns the land required to construct and operate the additional compression and station modifications. The FERC staff mailed copies of the EA 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. In addition, the EA is available for public viewing on the FERC’s Web site (www.ferc.gov) using the eLibrary link. A limited number of copies of the EA 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. Any person wishing to comment on the EA may do so. Your comments should focus on the potential environmental effects, reasonable alternatives, and measures to avoid or lessen environmental impacts. The more specific your comments, the more useful they will be.

National Fuel Gas Supply Corporation; Notice of Availability of 
the Environmental Assessment for the Proposed West Side Expansion and 
Modernization Project

    The staff of the Federal Energy Regulatory Commission (FERC or 
Commission) has prepared an environmental assessment (EA) for the West 
Side Expansion and Modernization Project (Project), proposed by 
National Fuel Gas Supply Corporation (National Fuel) in the above-
referenced docket. National Fuel requests authorization to construct 
and operate natural gas pipeline facilities in Washington, Allegheny, 
Beaver, Venango, and Mercer Counties, Pennsylvania to provide 
incremental delivery of about 175,000 dekatherms per day of natural 
gas.
    The EA assesses the potential environmental effects of the 
construction and operation of the 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 Project would replace about 23 miles of the existing 
20-inch-diameter Line N (referred to as Sections 1, 2, and 3) which 
were built in 1947, with new 24-inch-diameter pipeline located in 
Washington, Allegheny, and Beaver Counties. The replacement section is 
proposed to be constructed at an approximately 25-foot offset from the 
existing pipeline where feasible.
    The Project also consists of the installation of additional 
compression at the existing Mercer Compressor Station in Mercer County 
and miscellaneous piping modifications at the existing Henderson 
Compressor Station in Venango County. The modifications at the 
Henderson Compressor Station are necessary to meet the changing 
pipeline operating conditions with the addition of the new service. 
National Fuel currently owns the land required to construct and operate 
the additional compression and station modifications.
    The FERC staff mailed copies of the EA 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.
    In addition, the EA is available for public viewing on the FERC's 
Web site (www.ferc.gov) using the eLibrary link. A limited number of 
copies of the EA 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.
