(TGP) in the above-referenced docket. TGP requests authorization to construct and operate certain natural gas facilities in Tioga and Bradford Counties, Pennsylvania. The EA assesses the potential environmental effects of the construction and operation of the Susquehanna West 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. TGP’s proposed Project involves construction of approximately 8.1 miles of 36-inch-diameter looping pipeline in two segments and modifications at three existing compressor stations, two of which would include increased compression at the station. 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.

Tennessee Gas Pipeline Company, L.L.C.; Notice of Availability of 
the Environmental Assessment for the Proposed Susquehanna West Project

    The staff of the Federal Energy Regulatory Commission (FERC or

Susquehanna West Project, proposed by Tennessee Gas Pipeline Company, 
L.L.C. (TGP) in the above-referenced docket. TGP requests authorization
