FGT requests authorization to construct and operate about 13.3 miles of 12-inch-diameter lateral pipeline, about 11.4 miles of 16inch-diameter lateral and connection pipeline, and four new meter and regulation (M&R) stations and auxiliary and appurtenant facilities in Wharton, Matagorda, Jefferson, and Orange Counties, Texas, and Calcasieu and Acadia Parishes, Louisiana. The EA assesses the potential environmental effects of the construction and operation of the EastWest Project in accordance with the requirements of the National Environmental Policy Act (NEPA). The FERC staff concludes that approval of the proposed project, with appropriate mitigating measures, would not constitute a major federal action significantly affecting the quality of the human environment. The proposed East-West Project includes the following facilities: • About 13.3 miles of 12-inchdiameter delivery lateral pipe and M&R facilities (milepost 13.3) in Matagorda and Wharton counties, Texas; • about 11.4 miles of 16-inchdiameter delivery lateral pipe and M&R facilities (milepost 11) in Jefferson County, Texas; VerDate Sep<11>2014 17:54 Oct 26, 2017 Jkt 244001 • about 0.5 mile of 16-inch-diameter connection piping and M&R facilities in Acadia Parish, Louisiana and 0.02 mile of 12-inch-diameter connection piping and M&R facilities in Calcasieu Parish, Louisiana; and • modifications to station piping and installation of automated valves at Compressor Station (CS 6) in Orange County, Texas, so that CS 6 will be able to flow gas bi-directionally on the mainline. The FERC staff mailed copies of the EA to federal, state, and local government representatives and agencies; elected officials; environmental and public interest groups; Native American tribes; potentially affected landowners and other interested individuals and groups; and newspapers and libraries in the project area.
