    On August 16, 2018, the Commission staff granted Double E's request 
to utilize the National Environmental Policy Act (NEPA) Pre-Filing 
Process and assigned Docket No. PF18-6-000 to staff activities 
involving the Double E Pipeline Project. Now, as of the filing of this 
application on July 31, 2019, the NEPA Pre-Filing Process for this 
project has ended. From this time forward, this proceeding will be 
conducted in Docket No. CP19-495-000, as noted in the caption of this 
Notice.
    Pursuant to section 157.9 of the Commission's rules, 18 CFR 157.9, 
within 90 days of this Notice the Commission staff will either: 
Complete its environmental assessment (EA) and place it into the 
Commission's public record (eLibrary) for this proceeding; or issue a 
Notice of Schedule for Environmental Review. 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

serve to notify federal and 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 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 in the proceeding with the Commission 
and must provide a copy to the applicant and to every other party. 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 commenters 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 commenters will not be required to serve 
copies of filed documents on all other parties. However, the non-party 
commenters 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.
    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-of-time, 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\
