Michigan Electric Transmission Company, LLC; Notice of Institution of Section 206 Proceeding and Refund Effective Date, 67273 [2018-28253]

Download as PDF Federal Register / Vol. 83, No. 248 / Friday, December 28, 2018 / Notices • ‘‘Increased exports of natural gas will improve the U.S. balance of trade and result in a wealth transfer into the United States.’’ 266 • ‘‘Overall [U.S.] GDP improves as LNG exports increase for all scenarios with the same U.S. natural gas supply condition.267 • ‘‘There is no support for the concern that LNG exports would come at the expense of domestic natural gas consumption.’’ 268 • ‘‘[A] large share of the increase in LNG exports is supported by an increase in domestic natural gas production.’’ 269 • ‘‘Natural gas intensive [industries] continue to grow robustly at higher levels of LNG exports, albeit at slightly lower rates of increase than they would at lower levels.’’ 270 We have evaluated the public comments submitted in response to the 2018 Study. None of the eight comments opposing the 2018 Study have provided sufficient evidence to rebut or otherwise undermine these findings. Specifically, the opposing comments criticize aspects of the models, assumptions, and design of the 2018 Study. As discussed above, however, EIA’s most recent projections in AEO 2018 continue to show market conditions that will accommodate increased exports of natural gas. When compared to prior AEO Reference cases (including AEO 2017’s Reference case used in the 2018 Study), the AEO 2018 Reference case projects increases in domestic natural gas production—well in excess of what is required to meet projected increases in domestic consumption. Accordingly, DOE/FE finds that the 2018 LNG Export Study is fundamentally sound and supports the proposition that exports of LNG from the lower-48 states, in volumes up to and including 52.8 Bcf/d of natural gas, will not be inconsistent with the public interest.271 As stated above, DOE will consider each application as required under the NGA and NEPA based on the administrative record compiled in each individual proceeding. Signed in Washington, DC, on December 20, 2018. Steven E. Winberg, Assistant Secretary, Office of Fossil Energy. amozie on DSK3GDR082PROD with NOTICES1 [FR Doc. 2018–28238 Filed 12–27–18; 8:45 am] BILLING CODE 6450–01–P 266 Id. at 64. at 67. 268 Id. at 77. 269 Id. at 77. 270 Id. at 70. 271 2018 LNG Export Study at 63 & Appx F. 267 Id.
