The regulations provide that the Commission will publish annually an index figure reflecting the final change in the PPI–FG after the Bureau of Labor Statistics publishes the final PPI–FG in May of each calendar year.

1,000 horsepower electric-driven boil-off-gas (BOG) booster compressor 
unit, trim vaporizers, ancillary facilities, additional liquefied 
natural gas (LNG) transfer system valves, and equipment to manage the

System) to facilitate the import of LNG to cool down the existing LNG 
storage tanks and associated LNG facilities. The installation of the 
BOG Management System and cool down of the existing LNG facilities and 
LNG storage tanks would allow the Kenai LNG Plant to provide up to 7.0

proposed project under these general headings:

     Geological resources;
     water resources;
     wildlife;
     cultural resources;
     land use;
     air quality and noise;
     public safety; and
     cumulative impacts

    Commission staff will also evaluate reasonable alternatives to the 
proposed project, and make recommendations on how to lessen or avoid 
impacts on the various resource areas as applicable.
