This application form is necessary in order for DOE to identify if applicants meet basic requirements for use of the AFS and implement this important nonproliferation initiative; (5) Annual Estimated Number of Respondents: 10; (6) Annual Estimated Number of Total Responses: 10; (7) Annual Estimated Number of Burden Hours: 8; (8) Annual Estimated Reporting and Recordkeeping Cost Burden: $1,800. Statutory Authority: The Secretary of Energy is authorized pursuant to the Atomic Energy Act of 1954, as amended (Pub. L. 83–703), and the Nuclear NonProliferation Act of 1978 (NNPA) (Pub. L. 95–242) to encourage the widespread use of atomic energy for peaceful purposes, and to cooperate with other nations by distributing nuclear material where appropriate safeguards measures are in place to ensure the material is properly controlled and used for peaceful purposes. In 2005, DOE set aside a portion of its LEU inventory to be used to support the International Atomic Energy Agency’s (IAEA) International Nuclear Fuel Bank (INFB) initiative, which is envisioned as an LEU reserve that will be administered by the IAEA and that will serve as a back-up for global supply disruptions. Congress later appropriated $49,540,000 in the Consolidated Appropriations Act, 2008 (Pub. L. 110–161) to fund a portion of the INFB. Congress, in the Explanatory Statement accompanying the House Appropriations Committee Print (which in the Act was given the same effect as a joint explanatory statement), noted that the INFB freed up DOE’s LEU set-aside, and recommended DOE also ‘‘allow U.S. interests to purchase uranium fuel from the Reliable Fuel Supply [now the AFS] in the event of supply disruption.’’ (H. Approp. Cmte. Print at 592.) The sale of LEU from the AFS will be conducted consistent with applicable law, the policies and guidance in the ‘‘Secretary of Energy’s 2008 Policy Statement of Management of the Department of Energy’s Excess Uranium Inventory’’ (March 11, 2008), and the DOE Excess Uranium Inventory Management Plan. Issued in Washington, DC on March 31, 2017. David Huizenga, Acting Deputy Administrator, Defense Nuclear Nonproliferation, National Nuclear Security Administration.

    Any questions concerning this application may be directed to Bill 
Hammons, Transcontinental Gas Pipe Line Company, LLC, P.O. Box 1396, 
Houston, Texas 77251, by telephone at (713) 215-2130.
    On May 18, 2016, Commission staff granted Transco's request to 
utilize the Pre-Filing Process and assigned Docket No. PF16-5-000 to 
staff activities involved in the Northeast Supply Enhancement Project. 
Now, as of the March 27, 2017 application, the Pre-Filing Process for 
this project has ended. From this time forward, this proceeding will be 
conducted in Docket No. CP17-101-000, as noted in the caption of the 
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 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) for this proposal. 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.
    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

[[Page 17652]]

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 seven copies of the protest or intervention to 
the Federal Energy Regulatory Commission, 888 First Street NE.,
