If a Notice of Schedule for Environmental Review is issued, it will indicate, among other milestones, the anticipated date for the Commission staff’s issuance of the final environmental impact statement (FEIS) or EA for this proposal. The filing of the EA in the Commission’s public record for this proceeding or the issuance of a Notice of Schedule for Environmental Review will serve to notify federal and VerDate Sep<11>2014 16:55 Jun 12, 2019 Jkt 247001 state agencies of the timing for the completion of all necessary reviews, and the subsequent need to complete all federal authorizations within 90 days of the date of issuance of the Commission staff’s FEIS or EA. There are two ways to become involved in the Commission’s review of this project. First, any person wishing to obtain legal status by becoming a party to the proceedings for this project should, on or before the comment date stated below, file with the Federal Energy Regulatory Commission, 888 First Street NE, Washington, DC 20426, a motion to intervene in accordance with the requirements of the Commission’s Rules of Practice and Procedure (18 CFR 385.214 or 385.211) and the Regulations under the NGA (18 CFR 157.10). A person obtaining party status will be placed on the service list maintained by the Secretary of the Commission and will receive copies of all documents filed by the applicant and by all other parties. A party must submit 3 copies of filings made with the Commission and must provide a copy to the applicant and to every other party in the proceeding. Only parties to the proceeding can ask for court review of Commission orders in the proceeding. However, a person does not have to intervene in order to have comments considered. The second way to participate is by filing with the Secretary of the Commission, as soon as possible, an original and two copies of comments in support of or in opposition to this project. The Commission will consider these comments in determining the appropriate action to be taken, but the filing of a comment alone will not serve to make the filer a party to the proceeding. The Commission’s rules require that persons filing comments in opposition to the project provide copies of their protests only to the party or parties directly involved in the protest. Persons who wish to comment only on the environmental review of this project should submit an original and two copies of their comments to the Secretary of the Commission. Environmental commentors will be placed on the Commission’s environmental mailing list and will be notified of any meetings associated with the Commission’s environmental review process. Environmental commentors will not be required to serve copies of filed documents on all other parties. However, the non-party commentors will not receive copies of all documents filed by other parties or issued by the Commission and will not have the right to seek court review of the Commission’s final order. PO 00000 Frm 00049 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 27627 As of the February 27, 2018 date of the Commission’s order in Docket No. CP16–4–001, the Commission will apply its revised practice concerning out-of-time motions to intervene in any new Natural Gas Act section 3 or section 7 proceeding.1 Persons desiring to become a party to a certificate proceeding are to intervene in a timely manner. If seeking to intervene out-oftime, the movant is required to show good cause why the time limitation should be waived, and should provide justification by reference to factors set forth in Rule 214(d)(1) of the Commission’s Rules and Regulations.2 The Commission strongly encourages electronic filings of comments, protests and interventions in lieu of paper using the eFiling link at http://www.ferc.gov. Persons unable to file electronically should submit an original and 3 copies of the protest or intervention to the Federal Energy Regulatory Commission, 888 First Street NE, Washington, DC 20426.

Summary of the Proposed Project Amendment Magnolia LNG requests authorization to increase the previously authorized LNG production capacity of the Magnolia LNG Project (Docket No. CP14–347–000) from 8 million tons per annum (MTPA) to 8.8 MTPA. Magnolia LNG states that the increased LNG production capacity would be realized through the optimization of its final design and would not require any increase in the authorized feed gas rates. Magnolia LNG does not propose any additional construction or new or modified facilities already considered and approved in Docket No. CP14–347– 000 (i.e., the approved LNG terminal site in Lake Charles, Calcasieu Parish, PO 00000 Frm 00050 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 Louisiana 1.) Magnolia LNG also affirms that the annual number of LNG takers (vessel traffic) would not change from that already reviewed and approved by the U.S. Coast Guard. The Supplemental EIS Process and Identified Issues The supplemental EIS will discuss impacts that could occur as a result of the proposed increase in production capacity described above. To date, we have identified potential environmental concerns related to the proposed process conditions for LNG, anhydrous ammonia, and other process fluids. As a result, Magnolia LNG indicated revised hazard distances with increased offsite impacts. Therefore, associated hazard mitigation, such as impoundment designs and other fire protection systems need to be reevaluated as a result of the higher production rate. There may also be revisions to air emissions and noise levels; if so, these will be evaluated and discussed in the supplemental EIS. Commission staff will also evaluate reasonable alternatives to the proposed project amendment or portions of the project amendment, and make recommendations on how to lessen or avoid impacts on the various resource areas. The supplemental EIS will present Commission staffs’ independent analysis of the issues.
