You can make a difference by providing use with your specific comments or concerns about the Project. Your comments should focus on the potential environmental effects, reasonable alternatives, and measures to avoid or lessen environmental impacts. Your input will help the Commission staff determine what issues need to be evaluated in the EA. To ensure that your comments are timely and properly recorded, please send your comments so that the Commission receives them in Washington, DC on or before October 5, 2015. If you sent comments on this project to the Commission before the opening of this docket on June 5, 2015, you will need to file those comments in Docket No. CP15–513–000 to ensure they are considered as part of this proceeding. 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 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 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 and the Project is approved, the pipeline company could initiate condemnation proceedings where compensation would be determined in accordance with state law. Texas Gas 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.

The project is designed to provide an additional 384,000 million standard cubic feet of natural gas per day of north to south transportation capacity on Texas Gas’s system while maintaining bi-directional flow capability on its system. Texas Gas proposes to modify seven existing compressor stations located in Lawrence and Dearborn Counties, Indiana; Webster, Breckinridge, and Jefferson Counties, Kentucky; Tipton County, Tennessee; and Coahoma County, Mississippi, by installing yard and station pipeline and various auxiliary facilities. Texas Gas also proposes to modify the existing Bastrop Compressor Station in Morehouse Parish, Louisiana by classifying four existing compressor units as back-up units (a total of 7,040 horsepower) and adding one new 9,688 horsepower turbine compressor unit. The Project also includes the construction and operation of the new 23,877 horsepower Harrison Compressor Station in Hamilton County, Ohio. E:\FR\FM\11SEN1.SGM 11SEN1
