Download as PDF 89456 Federal Register / Vol. 81, No. 238 / Monday, December 12, 2016 / Notices 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—January 24, 2017 90-day Federal Authorization Decision Deadline—April 24, 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 excavate and elevate sections of its Lines 10 (30inch-diameter), 15 (30-inch-diameter), 25 (36-inch-diameter) and 30 (36-inchdiameter) to minimize and monitor potential strains on the pipelines due to anticipated longwall mining activities of Marshall Coal. Concurrent with pipeline elevation, portions of two of the lines, Lines 10 and 15, will be replaced with new pipe to accommodate a minimum US Department of Transportation Class 2 design. The sections of Lines 25 and 30 will be removed and Texas Eastern will perform maintenance activities on them. The four mainline sections will be returned to natural gas service while remaining elevated using sandbags and skids during the longwall mining activities and potential ground subsidence. Once the mining-induced subsidence and the 2017–2018 heating season have both ended, the two sections of Lines 10 and 15 located within wetlands will be removed and the four elevated pipeline sections will be re-installed belowground, hydrostatically tested, and placed back into service. mstockstill on DSK3G9T082PROD with NOTICES Background On September 30, 2016, the Commission issued a Notice of Intent to Prepare an Environmental Assessment for the Proposed Marshall County Mine Panel 17W Project and Request for Comments on Environmental Issues (NOI).
