CP14–103–000; CP14–115– 000] mstockstill on DSK4VPTVN1PROD with NOTICES Elba Liquefaction Company, LLC, Southern LNG Company, LLC, Elba Express Company, LLC; Notice of Availability of the Environmental Assessment for the Proposed Elba Liquefaction Project The staff of the Federal Energy Regulatory Commission (FERC or Commission) has prepared an environmental assessment (EA) for the natural gas facilities proposed by Elba Liquefaction Company, LLC (ELC), Southern LNG Company, LLC (SLNG), and Elba Express Company, LLC (EEC) (collectively referred to as ‘‘Companies’’) in the above-referenced dockets. The proposed Elba Liquefaction Project and EEC Modification Project are collectively referred to as the Elba Liquefaction Project, or Project. The Companies request authorization to add natural gas liquefaction and exporting capabilities to SLNG’s existing Elba Island liquefied natural gas (LNG) terminal (LNG Terminal) and abandon SLNG’s existing LNG truck loading facilities at the LNG Terminal in Chatham County, Georgia. In addition, the Companies propose to construct and operate new and modified compression and metering facilities in Hart, Jefferson, and Effingham Counties, Georgia, and in Jasper County, South Carolina. The Project would enable SLNG to export approximately 2.5 million tons per annum of LNG via the existing LNG Terminal in Chatham County, Georgia. VerDate Sep<11>2014 16:52 Feb 10, 2016 Jkt 238001 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 (NEPA). 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 U.S. Department of Energy— Office of Fossil Energy (DOE–FE), U.S. Department of Transportation (DOT), and U.S. Coast Guard (USCG) participated as cooperating agencies in the preparation of the EA. Cooperating agencies have jurisdiction by law or special expertise with respect to resources potentially affected by the proposal and participate in the NEPA analysis, and will adopt and use the EA to support their respective approvals for the Project. ELC and SLNG propose to construct and operate liquefaction and export facilities in two phases at the LNG Terminal. Phase I of the proposed facilities associated with the LNG Terminal includes installation of three liquefaction system units; installation of a flare system and a marine flare; modifications to the LNG Terminal; and ancillary facilities and support system modifications. Project facilities associated with Phase II include installation of seven additional liquefaction system units, ancillary support systems, and potential additions or upgrades to systems installed as part of Phase I. ECC proposes to construct and operate facilities on its existing pipeline system in three phases. The Phase I would include the addition of approximately 31,800 horsepower (hp) of compression and metering modifications to the existing Hartwell Compressor Station; construction of a new 15,900 hp compressor station in Jefferson County, Georgia; construction of a new 15,900 hp compressor station in Effingham County, Georgia; installation of new metering facilities at existing sites in Chatham and Effingham County, Georgia and Jasper County, South Carolina; and modifications to segregate the two pipelines that currently extend from Elba Island to Port Wentworth, Georgia. Phase II would include the addition of approximately 15,900 hp of compression at the existing Hartwell Compressor Station. Phase III would include the addition of approximately 15,900 hp at each of the Hartwell, Jefferson, and Rincon Compressor Stations.

Elba Liquefaction Company, LLC, Southern LNG Company, LLC, Elba 
Express Company, LLC; Notice of Availability of the Environmental 
Assessment for the Proposed Elba Liquefaction Project

    The staff of the Federal Energy Regulatory Commission (FERC or 
Commission) has prepared an environmental assessment (EA) for the 
natural gas facilities proposed by Elba Liquefaction Company, LLC 
(ELC), Southern LNG Company, LLC (SLNG), and Elba Express Company, LLC 
(EEC) (collectively referred to as ``Companies'') in the above-
referenced dockets. The proposed Elba Liquefaction Project and EEC 
Modification Project are collectively referred to as the Elba 
Liquefaction Project, or Project. The Companies request authorization 
to add natural gas liquefaction and exporting capabilities to SLNG's 
existing Elba Island liquefied natural gas (LNG) terminal (LNG 
Terminal) and abandon SLNG's existing LNG truck loading facilities at 
the LNG Terminal in Chatham County, Georgia. In addition, the Companies 
propose to construct and operate new and modified compression and 
metering facilities in Hart, Jefferson, and Effingham Counties, 
Georgia, and in Jasper County, South Carolina. The Project would enable 
SLNG to export approximately 2.5 million tons per annum of LNG via the 
existing LNG Terminal in Chatham County, Georgia.
    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 (NEPA). 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 U.S. Department of Energy--Office of Fossil Energy (DOE-FE), 
U.S. Department of Transportation (DOT), and U.S. Coast Guard (USCG) 
participated as cooperating agencies in the preparation of the EA. 
Cooperating agencies have jurisdiction by law or special expertise with 
respect to resources potentially affected by the proposal and 
participate in the NEPA analysis, and will adopt and use the EA to 
support their respective approvals for the Project.
    ELC and SLNG propose to construct and operate liquefaction and 
export facilities in two phases at the LNG Terminal. Phase I of the 
proposed facilities associated with the LNG Terminal includes 
installation of three liquefaction system units; installation of a 
flare system and a marine flare; modifications to the LNG Terminal; and 
ancillary facilities and support system modifications. Project 
facilities associated with Phase II include installation of seven 
additional liquefaction system units, ancillary support systems, and 
potential additions or upgrades to systems installed as part of Phase 
I.
    ECC proposes to construct and operate facilities on its existing 
pipeline system in three phases. The Phase I would include the addition 
of approximately 31,800 horsepower (hp) of compression and metering 
modifications to the existing Hartwell Compressor Station; construction 
of a new 15,900 hp compressor station in Jefferson County, Georgia; 
construction of a new 15,900 hp compressor station in Effingham County, 
Georgia; installation of new metering facilities at existing sites in 
Chatham and Effingham County, Georgia and Jasper County, South 
Carolina; and modifications to segregate the two pipelines that 
currently extend from Elba Island to Port Wentworth, Georgia.
    Phase II would include the addition of approximately 15,900 hp of 
compression at the existing Hartwell Compressor Station. Phase III 
would include the addition of approximately 15,900 hp at each of the 
Hartwell, Jefferson, and Rincon Compressor Stations.
    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
