Columbia Gulf requests authorization to add new compression in Kentucky to provide about 621,000 dekatherms per day of firm transportation on Columbia Gulf’s system. The final EIS assesses the potential environmental effects of the construction and operation of the Projects in accordance with the requirements of the National Environmental Policy Act (NEPA).

Cooperating agencies have jurisdiction by law or special expertise with respect to resources potentially affected by the proposals and participate in the NEPA analysis. Although the cooperating agencies provided input to the conclusions and recommendations presented in the final EIS, the agencies will present their own conclusions and recommendations in their respective Records of Decision for the Projects. The final EIS addresses the potential environmental effects of the construction and operation of the following facilities: • 132 miles of new 36-inch-diameter natural gas pipeline, 24 miles of 36- PO 00000 Frm 00029 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 inch-diameter looping pipeline,1 28 miles of 20-inch-diameter pipeline to be abandoned in place, 3 new compressor stations, and appurtenant facilities including 2 existing compressor station modifications, 4 new and 1 modified regulator stations, 13 pig launcher and receiver facilities,2 9 mainline valves and 5 odorization facilities proposed by Columbia Gas; and • two new compressor stations, and a modification to an existing measurement and regulation station proposed by Columbia Gulf. The FERC staff mailed copies of the final 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.
