Florida Gas requests authorization to provide 169,000 million British thermal units per day (MMBtu/d) of natural gas to subscribed Project shippers. Florida Gas also requests approval to upgrade facilities at Compressor Station 18 to increase reliability to existing shippers. The Project includes modifications to existing facilities and installation of new pipeline loops in Columbia, Union, Putnam, Clay, and Orange counties, Florida. The EA assesses the potential environmental effects of the construction and operation of the Putnam Expansion Project in accordance with the requirements of the National Environmental Policy Act (NEPA). The FERC staff concludes that approval of the proposed project, with appropriate mitigating measures, would not constitute a major federal action VerDate Sep<11>2014 17:56 Dec 11, 2019 Jkt 250001 significantly affecting the quality of the human environment. The Putnam Expansion Project would consist of the following facilities in Florida: • West Loop—install 13.7 miles of 30inch-diameter pipeline loop 1 in Columbia and Union Counties; • East Loop—install 7.0 miles of 30inch-diameter pipeline loop in Clay and Putnam Counties; • Columbia/Union Receiver Station Relocation—remove and relocate the existing 30-inch-diameter loop pig receiver located at the beginning of the West Loop in Columbia County to a new pig receiver station to be installed at the terminus of the West Loop in Union County; • Clay/Putnam Receiver Station Relocation—remove and relocate the existing 30-inch-diateter loop pig receiver located at the beginning of the East Loop in Clay County to a new pig receiver station to be installed at the terminus of the East Loop in Putnam County; • Compressor Station (CS) 18—install new automated valves, over pressure protection device, and station piping at Florida Gas’s existing CS 18 in Orange County, Florida. The Commission mailed a copy of the Notice of Availability to federal, state, and local government representatives and agencies; elected officials; environmental and public interest groups; Native American tribes; potentially affected landowners and other interested individuals and groups; and newspapers and libraries in the project area. The EA is only available in electronic format. It may be viewed and downloaded from the FERC’s website (www.ferc.gov), on the Environmental Documents page (https://www.ferc.gov/ industries/gas/enviro/eis.asp). In addition, the EA may be accessed by using the eLibrary link on the FERC’s 1 A pipeline loop is a segment of pipe constructed parallel to an existing pipeline to increase capacity. A ‘‘pig’’ is a tool that the pipeline company inserts into and pushes through the pipeline for cleaning the pipeline, conducting internal inspections, or other purposes.
