Description of Proceeding: The licensee is in violation of standard Article 16 of its license issued on June 24, 1986 (35 FERC ¶ 62,532). Article 16 states, in part: If the Licensee shall abandon or discontinue good faith operation of the project or refuse or neglect to comply with the terms of the license and the lawful orders of the Commission mailed to the record address of the Licensee or its agent, the Commission will deem it to be the intent of the Licensee to surrender the license. Commission records indicate that the project has not been operated since the fall of 2012 when heavy storms flooded the powerhouse. Due to an ongoing property rights dispute involving access to and the use of lands needed for project purposes, the licensee has been reluctant to repair the project and return it to service. In addition, the licensee has not responded to several Commission requests to file a plan and schedule to restore project operation in a timely manner. l.

Specifically, NGLNG proposes to construct and operate one (1) new 20 million cubic feet per day (MMcf/d) gas pretreatment and liquefaction system to convert natural gas delivered by pipeline into liquefied natural gas (LNG). The liquefaction facility is designed to enable NGLNG to provide up to 20,600 dekatherms per day (Dth/ day) liquefaction service at its existing LNG storage facility. NGLNG estimates the total cost of the liquefaction Project to be $180 million. Additionally, NGLNG intends to undertake another project on its existing plant site at the same time. A storage tank containment enhancement project, called the Bund Wall Project, is planned to add a reinforced concrete bund wall around the existing tank. Both of these projects will be reviewed by the Commission in a single environment review process which has been underway per the Notice of Intent to Prepare an Environmental Document issued in Docket No. PF15–28–000 on September 25, 2015. On July 2, 2015 the Commission granted NGLNG’s request to utilize the Pre-Filing Process and assigned Docket No. PF15–28–000 to staff activities involved in the Project. Now, as of the filing of the April 1, 2016 application, the Pre-Filing Process for this Project has ended.

If a Notice of Schedule for Environmental Review is issued, it will indicate, among other milestones, the anticipated date for the Commission staff’s issuance of the final environmental impact statement (FEIS) or EA for this proposal. The filing of the EA in the Commission’s public record for this proceeding or the issuance of a Notice of Schedule for Environmental Review will serve to notify federal and state agencies of the timing for the completion of all necessary reviews, and the subsequent need to complete all federal authorizations within 90 days of the date of issuance of the Commission staff’s FEIS or EA. There are two ways to become involved in the Commission’s review of this project. First, any person wishing to obtain legal status by becoming a party to the proceedings for this project should, on or before the comment date stated below file with the Federal Energy Regulatory Commission, 888 First Street NE., Washington, DC 20426, a motion to intervene in accordance with the requirements of the Commission’s Rules of Practice and Procedure (18 CFR 385.214 or 385.211) and the Regulations under the NGA (18 CFR 157.10).

A party must submit seven copies of filings made in the proceeding with the Commission and must mail a copy to the applicant and to every other party. Only parties to the proceeding can ask for court review of Commission orders in the proceeding. However, a person does not have to intervene in order to have comments considered. The second way to participate is by filing with the Secretary of the Commission, as soon as possible, an original and two copies of comments in support of or in opposition to this project. The Commission will consider these comments in determining the appropriate action to be taken, but the filing of a comment alone will not serve to make the filer a party to the proceeding. The Commission’s rules require that persons filing comments in opposition to the project provide copies of their protests only to the party or parties directly involved in the protest. Persons who wish to comment only on the environmental review of this PO 00000 Frm 00023 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 project should submit an original and two copies of their comments to the Secretary of the Commission.

    Specifically, NGLNG proposes to construct and operate one (1) new 
20 million cubic feet per day (MMcf/d) gas pretreatment and

its existing plant site at the same time. A storage tank containment 
enhancement project, called the Bund Wall Project, is planned to add a

projects will be reviewed by the Commission in a single environment 
review process which has been underway per the Notice of Intent to 
Prepare an Environmental Document issued in Docket No. PF15-28-000 on 
September 25, 2015.
    On July 2, 2015 the Commission granted NGLNG's request to utilize 
the Pre-Filing Process and assigned Docket No. PF15-28-000 to staff 
activities involved in the Project. Now, as of the filing of the April 
1, 2016 application, the Pre-Filing Process for this Project has ended. 
From this time forward, this proceeding will be conducted in Docket No. 
CP16-121-000 as noted in the caption of this Notice.
    Pursuant to section 157.9 of the Commission's rules (18 CFR 157.9), 
within 90 days of this Notice, the Commission staff will either: 
Complete its environmental assessment (EA) and place it into the 
Commission's public record (eLibrary) for this proceeding; or issue a 
Notice of Schedule for Environmental Review. If a Notice of Schedule 
for Environmental Review is issued, it will indicate, among other 
milestones, the anticipated date for the Commission staff's issuance of 
the final environmental impact statement (FEIS) or EA for this 
proposal. The filing of the EA in the Commission's public record for 
this proceeding or the issuance of a Notice of Schedule for 
Environmental Review will serve to notify federal and state agencies of 
the timing for the completion of all necessary reviews, and the 
subsequent need to complete all federal authorizations within 90 days 
of the date of issuance of the Commission staff's FEIS or EA.
    There are two ways to become involved in the Commission's review of 
this project. First, any person wishing to obtain legal status by 
becoming a party to the proceedings for this project should, on or 
before the comment date stated below file with the Federal Energy 
Regulatory Commission, 888 First Street NE., Washington, DC 20426, a 
motion to intervene in accordance with the requirements of the 
Commission's Rules of Practice and Procedure (18 CFR 385.214 or 
385.211) and the Regulations under the NGA (18 CFR 157.10). A person 
obtaining party status will be placed on the service list maintained by 
the Secretary of the Commission and will receive copies of all 
documents filed by the applicant and by all other parties. A party must 
submit seven copies of filings made in the proceeding with the 
Commission and must mail a copy to the applicant and to every other 
party. Only parties to the proceeding can ask for court review of 
Commission orders in the proceeding.
    However, a person does not have to intervene in order to have 
comments considered. The second way to participate is by filing with 
the Secretary of the Commission, as soon as possible, an original and 
two copies of comments in support of or in opposition to this project. 
The Commission will consider these comments in determining the 
appropriate action to be taken, but the filing of a comment alone will 
not serve to make the filer a party to the proceeding. The Commission's 
rules require that persons filing comments in opposition to the project 
provide copies of their protests only to the party or parties directly 
involved in the protest.
    Persons who wish to comment only on the environmental review of 
this project should submit an original and two copies of their comments 
to the Secretary of the Commission. Environmental commentors will be 
placed on the Commission's environmental mailing list, will receive 
copies of the environmental documents, and will be notified of meetings 
associated with the Commission's environmental review process. 
Environmental commentors will not be required to serve copies of filed 
documents on all other parties. However, the non-party commentors will 
not receive copies of all documents filed by other parties or issued by 
the Commission (except for the mailing of environmental documents 
issued by the Commission) and will not have the right to seek court 
review of the Commission's final order.
    The Commission strongly encourages electronic filings of comments, 
protests and interventions in lieu of paper using the ``eFiling'' link 
at http://www.ferc.gov. Persons unable to file electronically should 
submit an original and 7 copies of the protest or intervention to the 
Federal Energy regulatory Commission, 888 First Street NE., Washington,
