On February 10, 2017, the Commission staff granted Jordan Cove’s request to utilize the Pre-Filing Process and assigned Docket No. PF17–4–000 to staff activities involved with Jordan Cove’s LNG Terminal and the Pacific Connector. Now, as of the filing of the application on September 21, 2017, the Pre-Filing Process for this project has ended. From this time forward, this proceeding will be conducted in Docket No. CP17–495–000 for the Jordan Cove Energy Project and in Docket No. CP17– 494–000 for the Pacific Connector, as noted in the caption of this Notice. Within 90 days after the Commission issues a Notice of Application for the applications in the two instant dockets, the Commission staff will issue a Notice of Schedule for Environmental Review that will indicate the anticipated date for the Commission’s staff issuance of the final EIS analyzing both proposals. The issuance of a Notice of Schedule for Environmental Review will also 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 final EIS. 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, before the comment date of this notice, 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 with the Commission and PO 00000 Frm 00057 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 must mail a copy to the applicant and to every other party in the proceeding. 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. The Commission strongly encourages electronic filings of comments, protests, and interventions via the internet in lieu of paper. See 18 CFR 385.2001(a)(1)(iii) and the instructions on the Commission’s Web site (www.ferc.gov) under the e-Filing link. Persons unable to file electronically should submit an original and 5 copies of the protest or intervention to the Federal Energy Regulatory Commission, 888 First Street NE., Washington, DC 20426.

The proposed project is known as the Eastern Panhandle Expansion Project (Project), and would involve construction and operation of approximately 3.4 miles of 8-inchdiameter pipeline in Fulton County, Pennsylvania; Washington County, Maryland: and Morgan County, West Virginia. On April 25, 2017, 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.

Project Description Columbia proposes to construct, operate, and maintain the Project in three counties and states (Fulton County, Pennsylvania; Washington County, Maryland; and Morgan County, West Virginia). The Project would provide an additional 47.5 dekatherms per day (Dth/d) of capacity for firm transportation service to markets in West Virginia through Mountaineer Gas Company’s (Mountaineer) gathering system. The Project will involve the construction and operation of approximately 3.4 miles of new greenfield 8-inch-diameter pipeline, three main line valves, and two new tiein assemblies. Background On April 25, 2017, the Commission issued a Notice of Intent to Prepare an Environmental Assessment for the Proposed Eastern Panhandle Expansion Project and Request for Comments on Environmental Issues (NOI).
