Notice of amendment. AGENCY: ACTION: The Office of Fossil Energy (FE) of the Department of Energy (DOE) gives notice of receipt of an amendment (Amendment), filed on October 5, 2015, by Jordan Cove Energy Project, L.P. (Jordan Cove) of its pending Application in this proceeding. The Application, filed on March 23, 2012, seeks authority to export domestically produced liquefied natural gas (LNG) in a volume equivalent to 292 Bcf/yr (0.8 Bcf/day) from a proposed terminal to be located on Coos Bay in the State of Oregon to nations with which the United States does not have a Free Trade Agreement (FTA) requiring national treatment for trade in natural gas (non-FTA nations). DOE published a ‘‘Notice of Application’’ in the Federal Register on June 6, 2012. 77 Fed.Reg. 33446. DOE/ FE received five motions to intervene in the proceeding and numerous comments for and against the proposed export authorization. The Amendment seeks to increase the volume of LNG for which Jordan Cove requests export authorization from the equivalent of 292 Bcf/yr to the equivalent of 350 Bcf/yr of natural gas (0.96 Bcf/day). On March 24, 2014, the Department of Energy issued DOE/FE Order No. 3413, conditionally granting Jordan Cove’s Application.1 DOE/FE has not yet issued a final order on the pending Application. In its Amendment, Jordan Cove states that it is increasing its requested volume by 58 Bcf/yr in order to reflect the maximum production capacity of the Facility of 6.8 million metric tons per SUMMARY: 1 Jordan Cove Energy Project, L.P., DOE/FE Order No. 3413, FE Docket No. 12–32–LNG, Order Conditionally Granting Long-Term Multi-Contract Authorization To Export Liquefied Natural Gas By Vessel From the Jordan Cove LNG Terminal in Coos Bay, Oregon to Non-Free Trade Agreement Nations (Mar. 24, 2014). PO 00000 Frm 00030 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 annum (mtpa) of LNG.2 According to Jordan Cove, the 6.8 million mtpa of LNG equates to 350 Bcf/yr of natural gas, which may be available for export.3 Jordan Cove asserts that the Amendment to increase the volume of its requested authorization does not alter the findings in the conditional export authorization in DOE/FE Order No. 3413 that the proposed exports have not been shown to be inconsistent with the public interest. Nor, Jordan Cove submits, will the increase in authorized export volumes entail environmental consequences.4 Additional details can be found in Jordan Cove’s Amendment, posted on the DOE/FE Web site at: http:// www.fossil.energy.gov/programs/ gasregulation/authorizations/2012_ applications/2015-10-05_JCEP_ Amendment_of_NFTA__Appli.pdf. Because the Amendment represents a substantive and material change in the Application, DOE has determined to publish this notice in the Federal Register, thereby providing the pubic with an opportunity to intervene, comment, and/or protest the Amendment. The Applicant separately has served the Amendment on each of the parties that have previously intervened in this proceeding. Protests, motions to intervene, notices of intervention, and written comments addressing the Amendment are invited. DATES: Protests, motions to intervene or notices of intervention, as applicable, requests for additional procedures, and written comments are to be filed using procedures detailed in the Public Comment Procedures section no later than 4:30 p.m., Eastern time, March 23, 2016.
