Venture Global requests authorization to construct and operate a new liquefied natural gas (LNG) export terminal and associated facilities along the west bank of the Mississippi River in Plaquemines Parish, Louisiana (Terminal) and to construct and operate two new 42-inchdiameter natural gas pipeline laterals that would connect to the LNG Terminal. The new liquefaction facilities would have a nameplate production capacity of 20.0 million metric tons per annum (MTPA) of LNG and peak production capacity of 24 MTPA. The final EIS assesses the potential environmental effects of the construction and operation of the Plaquemines LNG and Gator Express Pipeline 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 final EIS, would have some adverse environmental impacts. These impacts would be reduced to less-thansignificant levels with the implementation of Venture Global’s proposed mitigation measures and the additional measures recommended in the final EIS.

Venture Global Plaquemines LNG, LLC and Venture Global Gator 
Express, LLC; Notice of Availability of the Final Environmental Impact 
Statement for the Proposed Plaquemines LNG and Gator Express Pipeline 
Project

    The staff of the Federal Energy Regulatory Commission (FERC or 
Commission) has prepared a final environmental impact statement (EIS) 
for the Plaquemines LNG and Gator Express Pipeline Project, proposed by 
Venture Global Plaquemines LNG, LLC and Venture Global Gator Express, 
LLC in the above-referenced dockets. Venture Global requests 
authorization to construct and operate a new liquefied natural gas 
(LNG) export terminal and associated facilities along the west bank of 
the Mississippi River in Plaquemines Parish, Louisiana (Terminal) and 
to construct and operate two new 42-inch-diameter natural gas pipeline 
laterals that would connect to the LNG Terminal. The new liquefaction 
facilities would have a nameplate production capacity of 20.0 million 
metric tons per annum (MTPA) of LNG and peak production capacity of 24 
MTPA.
    The final EIS assesses the potential environmental effects of the 
construction and operation of the Plaquemines LNG and Gator Express 
Pipeline 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 final EIS, would have some adverse environmental impacts. These 
impacts would be reduced to less-than-significant levels with the 
implementation of Venture Global's proposed mitigation measures and the 
additional measures recommended in the final EIS.
    The U.S. Army Corps of Engineers, U.S. Coast Guard, U.S. Department 
of Energy, U.S. Environmental Protection Agency, and U.S. Department of 
Transportation participated as cooperating agencies in the preparation

of the EIS. 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 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 project facilities:

liquefaction, LNG distribution, and appurtenant facilities within the 
boundaries of the site leased by Venture Global on the Mississippi 
River, including:
    [cir] Six pretreatment facilities (three in each phase);
    [cir] a liquefaction plant with 18 integrated single-mixed 
refrigerant blocks and support facilities (otherwise referred to as 
liquefaction blocks or blocks) to be constructed in two phases (nine 
blocks in each phase);
    [cir] four 200,000-cubic-meter aboveground LNG storage tanks;
    [cir] three LNG loading docks within a common LNG berthing area; 
and
    [cir] air-cooled electric power generation facilities.
     Pipeline System: Construction and operation of two 
parallel 42-inch-diameter natural gas pipelines that share one right-
of-way corridor for the majority of their respective routes and 
appurtenant aboveground facilities, including the following:
    [cir] 15.1-mile-long Southwest Lateral Tennessee Gas Pipeline, LLC 
(TGP) Pipeline;
    [cir] 11.7-mile-long Southwest Lateral Texas Eastern Transmission, 
LP (TETCO) Pipeline;
    [cir] TGP metering and regulation station; and
    [cir] TETCO metering and regulation station.

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
