Transco requests authorization to construct, operate, and maintain new natural gas facilities in Clinton and Lycoming Counties; install new compressor stations in Luzerne and Schuylkill Counties; add additional compression at existing compressor stations in Wyoming and Columbia Counties; and abandon an existing pipeline in Clinton County (all in Pennsylvania), to provide 582,400 Dth/ d of firm natural gas transportation service from shale producing areas in northern and western Pennsylvania to Transco’s industrial, commercial, and residential customers in the eastern United States. The EA assesses the potential environmental effects of the construction and operation of the Projects in accordance with the requirements of the National Environmental Policy Act of 1969 (NEPA). The FERC staff concludes that approval of the proposed Projects, with appropriate mitigating measures, would not constitute a major federal action significantly affecting the quality of the human environment. The U.S. Army Corps of Engineers (Baltimore and Pittsburgh Districts) and the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency participated as cooperating agencies in the preparation of the EA. Cooperating agencies have jurisdiction by law or special expertise with respect to resources potentially affected by the proposal and participate in the NEPA analysis.

[Docket Nos. CP19-491-000; CP19-494-000]


National Fuel Gas Supply Corporation; Transcontinental Gas Pipe 
Line Company, LLC; Notice of Availability of the Environmental 
Assessment for the Proposed Fm100 and Leidy South Projects

    The staff of the Federal Energy Regulatory Commission (FERC or 
Commission) has prepared an environmental assessment (EA) for the FM100 
Project and the Leidy South Project (collectively referred to as the 
Projects), proposed by National Fuel Gas Supply Corporation (National 
Fuel) and Transcontinental Gas Pipe Line Company, LLC (Transco), 
respectively, in the above-referenced dockets. National Fuel requests 
authorization to construct, operate, and maintain new natural gas 
facilities in McKean and Potter Counties; install new compressor 
stations in McKean and Clinton Counties; abandon existing pipeline 
facilities in Cameron, Clearfield, Elk, and Potter Counties; and 
abandon an existing compressor station in Potter County (all in 
Pennsylvania), to modernize National Fuel's existing transmission 
system and provide an additional 330,000 dekatherms per day (Dth/d) of 
incremental natural gas transportation capacity to Transco. Transco 
requests authorization to construct, operate, and maintain new natural 
gas facilities in Clinton and Lycoming Counties; install new compressor 
stations in Luzerne and Schuylkill Counties; add additional compression 
at existing compressor stations in Wyoming and Columbia Counties; and 
abandon an existing pipeline in Clinton County (all in Pennsylvania), 
to provide 582,400 Dth/d of firm natural gas transportation service 
from shale producing areas in northern and western Pennsylvania to 
Transco's industrial, commercial, and residential customers in the 
eastern United States.
    The EA assesses the potential environmental effects of the 
construction and operation of the Projects in accordance with the 
requirements of the National Environmental Policy Act of 1969 (NEPA). 
The FERC staff concludes that approval of the proposed Projects, with 
appropriate mitigating measures, would not constitute a major federal 
action significantly affecting the quality of the human environment.
    The U.S. Army Corps of Engineers (Baltimore and Pittsburgh 
Districts) and the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency participated as 
cooperating agencies in the preparation of the EA. Cooperating agencies 
have jurisdiction by law or special expertise with respect to resources 
potentially affected by the proposal and participate in the NEPA 
analysis.
    The Projects would include the following facilities (all located in 
Pennsylvania):

FM100 Project

     Approximately 29.5 miles of new 20-inch-diameter pipeline 
in McKean and Potter Counties (Line YM58);

[[Page 8277]]

     approximately 1.4 miles of new 24-inch-diameter pipeline 
loop \1\ in Potter County (Line YM224);
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

    \1\ A loop is a segment of pipe that is usually installed 
adjacent to an existing pipeline and connected to it at both ends. 
The loop allows more gas to be moved through the system
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

     approximately 0.4 mile of 12-inch-diameter pipeline 
extension in McKean County (Line KL Extension);
     a new 15,165-horsepower (hp) compressor station in McKean 
County (Marvindale Compressor Station);
     a new 22,220-hp compressor station in Clinton County 
(Tamarack Compressor Station);
     a new producer interconnect station in McKean County 
(Marvindale Interconnect);
     a new over pressure protection (OPP) station in Potter 
County (Carpenter Hollow OPP Station);
     modification of the existing Leidy Interconnect LDC 2245 
at the Leidy Metering and Regulation Station in Clinton County;
     appurtenant facilities including valves, pig launchers, 
pig receivers, and anode beds;
     abandonment of approximately 44.9 miles of 12-inch-
diameter pipeline and associated appurtenant facilities in Cameron, 
Clearfield, Elk, and Potter Counties (Line FM100);
     abandonment of a 1,440-hp compressor station and 
associated facilities in Potter County (Costello Compressor Station); 
and
     abandonment of aboveground piping and measurement and over 
pressurization equipment in Potter County (Station WHP-MS-4317X).

Leidy South Project

     Approximately 6.3 miles of new 36-inch-diameter pipeline 
and associated abandonment by removal of approximately 5.8 miles of 
existing 23.375-inch-diameter pipeline Leidy Line A in Clinton County 
(Hensel Replacement);
     approximately 2.4 miles of new 36-inch-diameter pipeline 
looping in Clinton County (Hilltop Loop);
     approximately 3.5 miles of new 42-inch-diameter pipeline 
looping in Lycoming County (Benton Loop), including a new 90-foot-tall 
communication tower;
     uprate of the two existing compressor units to increase 
total hp from 30,000 hp to 42,000 hp at Compressor Station 605 in 
Wyoming County;
     uprate of the two existing compressor units to increase 
total hp from 40,000 hp to 42,000 hp and install a new 31,871-hp 
compressor unit at Compressor Station 610 in Columbia County;
     a new 46,930-hp compressor station in Luzerne County 
(Compressor Station 607), including a new 190-foot-tall, free-standing 
communication tower;
     a new 31,871-hp compressor station in Schuylkill County 
(Compressor Station 620); and
     appurtenant facilities including valves, pig launchers, 
and pig receivers.
    Additionally, both National Fuel and Transco propose to use 
temporary access roads and staging areas to support construction 
activities and would establish new permanent access roads to support 
operation of the new facilities.
    The Commission mailed a copy of the Notice of Availability for the 
EA 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 
area of the Projects. The EA is only available in electronic format. It 
may be viewed and downloaded from FERC's website (www.ferc.gov), on the 
Environmental Documents page (http://www.ferc.gov/industries/gas/enviro/eis.asp). In addition, the EA may be accessed by using the

    Any person seeking to become a party to the proceeding must file a 
motion to intervene pursuant to Rule 214 of the Commission's Rules of 
Practice and Procedures (18 CFR 385.214). Motions to intervene are more 
fully described at https://www.ferc.gov/resources/guides/how-to/intervene.asp. Only intervenors have the right to seek rehearing or

affected landowners and others with environmental concerns intervenor 
status upon showing good cause by stating that they have a clear and 
direct interest in this proceeding which no other party can adequately 
represent. Simply filing environmental comments will not give you
