Golden Pass requests authorization to expand and modify the existing Golden Pass LNG Import Terminal to allow the export of LNG, which would require construction and operation of various liquefaction, LNG distribution, and appurtenant facilities. The Project would also include construction of approximately 2.6 miles of 24-inch pipeline, three new compressor stations, and interconnections for bi-directional transport of natural gas to and from the Golden Pass LNG Export terminal.

Golden Pass Products, LLC and Golden Pass Pipeline, LLC; Notice 
of Availability of the Draft Environmental Impact Statement for the 
Proposed Golden Pass LNG Export Project

    The staff of the Federal Energy Regulatory Commission (FERC or 
Commission) has prepared a draft environmental impact statement (EIS) 
for the Golden Pass Liquefied Natural Gas (LNG) Export Project, 
proposed by Golden Pass Products, LLC and Golden Pass Pipeline, LLC 
(collectively referred to as Golden Pass) in the above-referenced 
docket. Golden Pass requests authorization to expand and modify the 
existing Golden Pass LNG Import Terminal to allow the export of LNG, 
which would require construction and operation of various liquefaction, 
LNG distribution, and appurtenant facilities. The Project would also 
include construction of approximately 2.6 miles of 24-inch pipeline, 
three new compressor stations, and interconnections for bi-directional 
transport of natural gas to and from the Golden Pass LNG Export 
terminal.
    The draft EIS assesses the potential environmental effects of the 
construction and operation of the Golden Pass LNG Export Project in 
accordance with the requirements of the National Environmental Policy 
Act (NEPA). The FERC staff concludes that approval of the proposed 
project, with the mitigation measures recommended in the EIS, would 
result in some adverse environmental impact; however, those impacts 
would not be significant with

implementation of Golden Pass' proposed mitigation and the additional 
measures recommended in the draft EIS.
    The U.S. Army Corps of Engineers, U.S. Coast Guard (Coast Guard), 
U.S. Department of Energy, U.S. Department of Transportation, and U.S. 
Environmental Protection Agency participated as cooperating agencies in 
the preparation of the EIS. Cooperating agencies have jurisdiction by 
law or special expertise with respect to resources potentially affected 
by the proposal and participate in the NEPA analysis. Although the 
cooperating agencies provided input to the conclusions and 
recommendations presented in the draft EIS, the agencies will present 
their own conclusions and recommendations in their respective Records 
of Decision for the project.
    The draft EIS addresses the potential environmental effects of the 
construction and operation of the following project facilities:
     Liquefaction facilities at the existing Golden Pass Export 
Terminal including three liquefaction trains, a truck unloading 
facility, refrigerant and condensate storage, safety and control 
systems, and associated infrastructure;
     a supply dock and alternate marine delivery facilities at 
the Terminal;
     three miles of a new 24-inch-diameter pipeline loop \1\ 
adjacent to the existing Golden Pass pipeline;

    \1\ A loop is a segment of pipe that is installed adjacent to an 
existing pipeline and connected to it at both ends. A loop generally 
allows more gas to move through the system.
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

     three new compressor stations;
     five new pipeline interconnections and modifications at 
existing pipeline interconnections; and
     miscellaneous appurtenant facilities.
    The FERC staff mailed copies of the draft EIS 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. Paper copy versions of this EIS were mailed to those 
specifically requesting them; all others received a CD version. In 
addition, the draft EIS is available for public viewing on the FERC's 
Web site (www.ferc.gov) using the eLibrary link. A limited number of
