The Guidance Manual has been revised to incorporate changed regulations; provide updated guidance on how to prepare resource reports and how interstate and liquefied natural gas (LNG) projects may demonstrate compliance with certain regulatory requirements; and address substantive comments received on the draft Guidance Manual. The Guidance Manual can be found in Docket Number AD16–3–000. The full text of the Guidance Manual can be viewed on the Commission’s Web site at http://www.ferc.gov/industries/gas/ enviro/guidelines.asp. Applicable sections of Title 18 of the Code of Federal Regulations are referenced or summarized throughout the Guidance Manual. The Guidance Manual is intended to provide guidance to the industry. This manual does not substitute for, amend, or supersede the Commission’s regulations under the Natural Gas Act of 1938 or the Commission’s and Council on Environmental Quality’s regulations under the National Environmental Policy Act. It imposes no new legal obligations and grants no additional rights. Comments on the draft Guidance Manual that addressed only the text of VerDate Sep<11>2014 18:46 Feb 27, 2017 Jkt 241001 regulations were not incorporated in the final Guidance Manual. In response to the draft Guidance Manual, Commission staff received comments from a variety of industry representatives, trade associations, federal and state agencies, nongovernmental organizations, public interest groups, consultants, and other interested parties. Staff reviewed and considered each comment and modified several portions of the document in response. Staff declined to modify the document where comments either were too project- or location-specific to be included in general guidance, were already adequately/accurately addressed as written, or regarded topics that were not relevant to the Guidance Manual or resource report preparation. The Guidance Manual is divided into two volumes. Volume 1 relates to the preparation of resource reports for both interstate natural gas projects and Commission-jurisdictional LNG facilities. Volume 2 is specific to LNG facilities and is intended to replace a series of staff’s previously developed guidance documents about the preparation and review of LNG applications: Draft Guidance on Resource Report 11 and 13 issued on December 15, 2005, Draft Preferred Format Submittal Guidance issued on April 12, 2006, and Draft FERC Seismic Design Guidelines and Data Submittal Requirements for LNG Facilities issued on January 23, 2007. These documents should be considered obsolete.

    Specifically, Transco states that the Project will enable it to 
provide 161,500 dekatherms per day natural gas of incremental firm 
transportation capacity from Transco's existing Station 65 zone 3 pool 
in St. Helena Parish, Louisiana southward along the Southeast Louisiana 
Lateral and through the St. James Supply Lateral to the Yuhuang 
Chemical Plant. The facilities to be installed by Transco in the 
Project include: (1) The 0.72 mile, 20-inch-diameter St. James Supply 
Lateral and the associated Old River Road metering and regulation (M&R) 
station at the interconnection with the Yuhuang Chemical Plant in St. 
James Parish, Louisiana; (2) piping and valve installation required to 
tie in the Old River Road M&R station with the existing Southeast 
Louisiana Lateral ``B'' and Southeast Louisiana Lateral ``C'' at 
approximately milepost (MP) 72.37; (3) piping and valve modifications 
at existing Compressor Station (CS) 63 in St. James Parish, Louisiana 
to allow gas to flow south along the Southeast Louisiana Lateral; (4) 
piping and valve modifications at existing CS 65 in St. Helena Parish, 
Louisiana to allow for bi-directional flow of gas; and (5) the proposed 
Cajun Road M&R station, located on Transco's mainline at the 
interconnection with Texas Eastern Transmission Company at 
approximately MP 581.33 in Pointe Coupee Parish, Louisiana
    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 7 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.

protests and interventions in lieu of paper using the ``eFiling'' link
