SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: The U.S. Department of Energy (DOE) is issuing this Record of Decision (ROD) for the long-term management and storage of elemental mercury to meet the federal government’s statutory responsibility for long-term storage of the elemental mercury generated within the United States. This ROD is issued for the Final Long-Term Management and Storage of Elemental Mercury Environmental Impact Statement (DOE/EIS–0423; Final Elemental Mercury Storage EIS) and the Final Long-Term Management and Storage of Elemental Mercury Supplemental Environmental Impact Statement (DOE/EIS–0423–S1; Final SEIS). In 2019 DOE prepared a Supplement Analysis of the Final LongTerm Management and Storage of Elemental Mercury Environmental Impact Statement (DOE/EIS–0423–SA– 01) to determine if there have been substantial changes to the proposal or if there are significant new circumstances or information relevant to environmental concerns as compared with those presented in the Final Elemental Mercury Storage EIS and Final SEIS. This ROD announces the DOE decision to store up to 6,800 metric tons (7,480 tons) of elemental mercury in existing buildings at Waste Control Specialists near Andrews, Texas.

Electronic Background Pursuant to Section 5 of the Mercury Export Ban Act of 2008 (Pub. L. 110– 414; MEBA), as amended by the Frank R. Lautenberg Chemical Safety for the 21st Century Act, (Pub. L. 114–182) (herein referred to as MEBA), the U.S. Department of Energy (DOE) was directed to designate a facility or facilities for the long-term management and storage of elemental mercury generated within the United States. On July 2, 2009, DOE issued a Notice of Intent in the Federal Register (74 FR 31723) to prepare a draft environmental impact statement for elemental mercury storage. This notice invited the public to participate in the public scoping process on the proposed management and storage alternatives for analysis in the draft EIS and included information on public scoping meeting dates and locations. On January 29, 2010, DOE issued a Notice of Availability in the Federal Register (75 FR 4801) to notify the public of the issuance of the Draft LongTerm Management and Storage of Elemental Mercury Environmental Impact Statement (DOE/EIS–0423–D; Draft Elemental Mercury Storage EIS) for public comment and announce public hearings. The Draft Elemental Mercury Storage EIS analyzed the storage of up to 10,000 metric tons (11,000 tons) of elemental mercury in a facility or facilities constructed and operated in accordance with the Solid Waste Disposal Act, as amended by the Resource Conservation and Recovery Act (74 FR 31723). DOE evaluated seven government and commercial sites as the range of reasonable alternatives in the Draft Elemental Mercury Storage EIS. In the Draft Elemental Mercury Storage EIS, DOE identified the Waste Control Specialists (WCS) facility as its preferred alternative.

Erikson National Energy Inc., a Canadian corporation, acquired 
beneficial ownership representing approximately 14.7% or more of 
Pieridae's issued and outstanding common shares; and (ii) Alberta

DOE/FE Evaluation

    DOE/FE will review Pieridae US's Notice in accordance with its 
Procedures for Changes in Control Affecting Applications and 
Authorizations to Import or Export Natural Gas (CIC Procedures).\2\ 
Consistent with the CIC Procedures, this notice addresses only Pieridae 
US's final authorization to export liquefied natural gas (LNG) to non-
free trade agreement (non-FTA) countries, granted in DOE/FE Order No. 
3768 (FE Docket No. 14-179-LNG). If no interested person protests the

proposed change in control will be deemed granted 30 days after 
publication in the Federal Register. If one or more protests are 
submitted, DOE will review any motions to intervene, protests, and 
answers, and will issue a determination as to whether the proposed 
change in control has been demonstrated to render the underlying 
authorization inconsistent with the public interest.
