Texas Eastern Transmission, LP; Notice of Schedule for 
Environmental Review of the Bayway Lateral Project

    On June 29, 2016, Texas Eastern Transmission, LP (Texas Eastern) 
filed an application in Docket No. CP16-473-000 requesting a 
Certificate of Public Convenience and Necessity pursuant to Section 
7(c) of the Natural Gas Act to construct and operate certain natural 
gas pipeline facilities. The proposed project is known as the Bayway 
Lateral Project (Project). The Project would transport an incremental 
volume of approximately 300,000 dekatherms per day from Texas Eastern's 
existing Line 38 to serve new commercial customers (the Linden Cogen 
Power Plant and the Phillips 66 Bayway Refinery).
    On July 14, 2016, the Federal Energy Regulatory Commission 
(Commission or FERC) issued its Notice of Application for the Project. 
Among other things, that notice alerted agencies issuing federal 
authorizations of the requirement to complete all necessary reviews and 
to reach a final decision on a request for a federal authorization 
within 90 days of the date of issuance of the Commission staff's 
Environmental Assessment (EA) for the Project. This instant notice 
identifies the FERC staff's planned schedule for the completion of the 
EA for the Project.

Schedule for Environmental Review

    Issuance of EA: November 23, 2016.
    90-day Federal Authorization Decision Deadline: February 21, 2017.
    If a schedule change becomes necessary, additional notice will be 
provided so that the relevant agencies are kept informed of the 
Project's progress.

Project Description

    Texas Eastern proposes to construct, operate, and maintain new 
pipeline and aboveground facilities in the City of Linden, Union 
County, New Jersey. The Project would consist of the installation of 
approximately 2,300 linear feet of 24-inch-diameter pipeline connecting 
Texas Eastern's existing Line 38 to the Linden Cogen Power Plant and 
Phillips 66 Bayway Refinery. The Project also includes construction of 
one new fenced metering and regulating station on the Phillips 66-owned 
property adjacent to the Linden Cogen Power Plant.

Background

    On August 5, 2016, the Commission issued a Notice of Intent to

Project and Request for Comments on Environmental Issues (NOI). The NOI 
was sent to affected landowners; federal, state, and local government 
agencies; elected officials; environmental and public interest groups; 
Native American tribes; other interested parties; and local libraries 
and newspapers. We received one comment in response to our NOI from the 
U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA). The EPA suggested several 
additional environmental issues be addressed in the EA, including an 
analysis of air quality impacts; an evaluation of alternatives, 
including those outside FERC's jurisdiction; a comprehensive evaluation 
of cumulative, indirect, and secondary impacts; climate change 
adaptation; and environmental justice. Consolidated Rail Corporation 
also filed comments in response to the Notice of Application regarding 
railroad safety.
