Gulf LNG Liquefaction Company, LLC, Gulf LNG Energy, LLC, Gulf 
LNG Pipeline, LLC; Notice of Availability of the Final Environmental 
Impact Statement for the Proposed Gulf LNG Liquefaction Project

April 17, 2019.
    The staff of the Federal Energy Regulatory Commission (FERC or 
Commission) has prepared a final environmental impact statement (EIS) 
for the Gulf LNG Liquefaction Project, proposed by Gulf LNG 
Liquefaction

[[Page 17155]]

Company, LLC; Gulf LNG Energy, LLC; and Gulf LNG Pipeline, LLC (GLP) 
(collectively referred to as Gulf LNG) in the above-referenced docket. 
Gulf LNG requests authorization pursuant to Section 3(a) of the Natural 
Gas Act (NGA) to construct and operate onshore liquefied natural gas 
(LNG) liquefaction and associated facilities to allow export of LNG. 
Pursuant to Part 157.203 of Commission regulations, Gulf LNG intends to 
construct, own, operate, and maintain new interconnection and metering 
facilities for the existing Gulf LNG Pipeline in Jackson County, 
Mississippi. The proposed actions are referred to as the Gulf LNG 
Liquefaction Project (Project) and consist of the Gulf LNG Terminal 
Expansion (Terminal Expansion) and the GLP Pipeline Modifications.
    The final EIS assesses the potential environmental effects of 
construction and operation of the Gulf LNG Liquefaction Project in 
accordance with the requirements of the National Environmental Policy 
Act (NEPA). The FERC staff concludes that approval of the proposed 
Project, with the mitigation measures recommended in the EIS, would 
have some adverse environmental impacts; however, these impacts would 
be avoided or reduced to less-than-significant levels.

Energy, Office of Fossil Energy; the U.S. Department of 
Transportation's Pipeline and Hazardous Materials Safety 
Administration; U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service; National Oceanic and 
Atmospheric Administration, National Marine Fisheries Service; and U.S. 
Environmental Protection Agency participated as cooperating agencies in 
the preparation of the EIS. In addition, the Mississippi Office of the 
Secretary of State has jurisdiction over the wetland mitigation 
property and, therefore, is assisting us as a cooperating agency. 
Cooperating agencies have jurisdiction by law or special expertise with 
respect to resources potentially affected by the proposal and 
participate in the NEPA analysis. Although the cooperating agencies 
provided input to the conclusions and recommendations presented in the 
final EIS, the agencies will present their own conclusions and 
recommendations in their respective Records of Decision for the 
Project.
    The final EIS addresses the potential environmental effects of the 
construction and operation of the following proposed facilities:
     Feed gas pre-treatment facilities, including a mercury 
removal system, an acid gas removal system (to remove carbon dioxide 
and hydrogen sulfide), a molecular sieve dehydration system (to remove 
water), and a heavy hydrocarbon removal system (to remove natural gas 
liquids);
     two separate propane precooled mixed refrigerant 
liquefaction trains that liquefy natural gas, each with a nominal 
liquefaction capacity of 5 million tonnes per annum (mtpa) and a 
maximum capacity of more than 5.4 mtpa of LNG;
     liquefaction facility utilities and associated systems, 
including two gas-fired turbine compressors per liquefaction train;
     storage facilities for condensate, ammonia and 
refrigerants;
     utilities systems, including instrument, plant air, and 
nitrogen;
     a truck loading/unloading facility to unload refrigerants 
and to load condensate produced during the gas liquefaction process;
     four flares (including one spare flare) in a single flare 
tower to incinerate excess gases associated with maintenance, startup/
shutdown, and upset conditions during an emergency;
     two supply docks (North and South Supply Docks) designed 
to receive barges transporting materials and large equipment during 
construction, with one dock retained for use during operation;
     new in-tank LNG loading pumps in the existing LNG storage 
tanks to transfer LNG through the existing transfer lines to LNG marine 
carriers;
     new spill impoundment systems designed to contain LNG, 
refrigerants and other hazardous fluids;
     minor changes to piping at the existing berthing facility 
to permit bi-directional flow;
     a new concrete storm surge protection wall that connects 
to the existing storm surge protection wall near the southwest corner 
of the Terminal Expansion site and extends along the southern border of 
the Terminal Expansion site;
     a new earthen berm extending from the northeastern to the 
southeastern boundaries of the Terminal Expansion site, between the 
Terminal Expansion and the Bayou Casotte Dredged Material Management 
Site, and connecting to the new segments of the storm surge protection 
wall;
     six off-site construction support areas for use as staging 
and laydown areas, contractor yards, and parking;
     modifications to the existing metering stations at the 
existing Gulfstream Pipeline Company and Destin Pipeline Company 
interconnection facilities; and
     modifications to the existing Gulf LNG Pipeline at the 
existing Terminal to provide a connection to the inlet of the LNG 
liquefaction pre-treatment facilities.
    The Commission mailed a copy of the Notice of Availability 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. The final EIS is only available in electronic format. It may be 
viewed and downloaded from the FERC's website (www.ferc.gov), on the
