(Southern Star) in the above-referenced docket. The Project consists of the abandonment of two pipelines and construction of one larger diameter pipeline to replace the pipelines being abandoned in Anderson and Franklin Counties, Kansas. The EA assesses the potential environmental effects of abandoning, constructing, and operating the Project in accordance with the requirements of the National Environmental Policy Act. The FERC staff concludes that approval of the Project, with appropriate mitigating measures, would not constitute a major federal action significantly affecting the quality of the human environment. Southern Star proposes to construct 31.5 construct 31.5 miles of new 36inch-diameter pipeline, designated as Line DPA, and three small-diameter (i.e., 2 to 4 inches) pipeline laterals, totaling about 5.9 miles. The new pipelines would replace Southern Star’s existing Lines DS and DT. Line DS is a 31.4-mile-long, 20-inch-diameter pipeline of which 29.4 miles would be removed and 2 miles would be abandoned in place. Line DT is a 31.8mile-long, 26-inch-diameter pipeline, of which 29 miles would be removed and 2.8 miles would be abandoned in place. Southern Star would also modify two existing compressor stations (Ottawa Compressor Station [CS] and Welda CS), five existing tie-ins, and associated auxiliary and appurtenant facilities. Lastly, Southern Star would construct one new regulator/measuring station (Richmond Regulator Station), two new launchers and receivers, three new mainline valves (MLVs), and four new tie-ins along the new pipeline laterals.
