PJM Interconnection, L.L.C.; Notice of Filing, 35281-35282 [2021-14134]

Download as PDF Federal Register / Vol. 86, No. 125 / Friday, July 2, 2021 / Notices Sierra Club filed a Request for Rehearing of the Alaska LNG Order, and AGDC filed a Motion for Leave to Answer and Answer to Sierra Club’s Request for Rehearing.12 On April 15, 2021, DOE/FE issued the Rehearing Order in which DOE/FE: (i) Granted AGDC’s Motion for Leave to Answer; (ii) granted Sierra Club’s Rehearing Request for the purpose of conducting the Alaska environmental study proceeding; and (ii) denied Sierra Club’s request for DOE/FE to withdraw the Alaska LNG Order, without prejudice to Sierra Club’s ability to request relief in the future, should circumstances change.13 DOE/FE explained that, since the issuance of the Alaska LNG Order and while DOE/FE’s action on Sierra Club’s Rehearing Request was pending, the President had issued two Executive Orders (E.O.) relevant to the Alaska LNG proceeding: E.O. 13990, Protecting Public Health and the Environment and Restoring Science to Tackle the Climate Crisis,14 and E.O. 14008, Tackling the Climate Crisis at Home and Abroad.15 Consistent with these Executive Orders and to address Sierra Club’s arguments on rehearing, DOE stated that it was appropriate to further evaluate the environmental impacts of exporting LNG from the proposed Alaska LNG Project to non-FTA countries. Therefore, DOE/FE announced that it was commissioning the Alaska environmental study proceeding.16 lotter on DSK11XQN23PROD with NOTICES1 Supplemental EIS (SEIS) DOE/FE intends to prepare a SEIS for the Alaska environmental study proceeding. The SEIS will include an 12 See Rehearing Order at 5–6 (providing additional background on DOE’s rehearing proceeding). Sierra Club’s and AGDC’s arguments on rehearing are summarized in the Rehearing Order at 6–10. 13 See id. at 2. 14 Exec. Order 13990 of Jan. 20, 2021, Protecting Public Health and the Environment and Restoring Science to Tackle the Climate Crisis, 86 FR 7037 (Jan. 25, 2021), available at: https:// www.federalregister.gov/documents/2021/01/25/ 2021-01765/protecting-public-health-and-theenvironment-and-restoring-science-to-tackle-theclimate-crisis. E.O. 13990 directs agencies to ‘‘immediately review’’ all regulations, orders, and other actions issued after January 20, 2017, that may increase GHG emissions or have other impacts on climate change. 15 Exec. Order No. 14008 of Jan. 27, 2021, Tackling the Climate Crisis at Home and Abroad, 86 FR 7619 (Feb. 1, 2021), available at: https:// www.federalregister.gov/documents/2021/02/01/ 2021-02177/tackling-the-climate-crisis-at-homeand-abroad. E.O. 14008 sets forth additional policies to address climate change—specifically to ‘‘organize and deploy the full capacity of [Federal] agencies to combat the climate crisis’’—and requires the ‘‘Federal Government [to] drive assessment, disclosure, and mitigation of climate pollution and climate-related risks in every sector’’ of the U.S. economy. 16 See Rehearing Order at 12–13. VerDate Sep<11>2014 17:12 Jul 01, 2021 Jkt 253001 upstream analysis of potential environmental impacts associated with natural gas production on the North Slope of Alaska. This analysis will examine potential upstream impacts associated with incremental natural gas production on the North Slope of Alaska due to Alaska LNG’s exports of LNG. In addition, the SEIS will include a LCA calculating the GHG emissions for LNG exported from the proposed Alaska LNG Project, taking into account unique issues relating to production, pipeline transportation, and liquefaction in Alaska.17 Specifically, the LCA will examine the life cycle GHG emissions for LNG exported from Alaska by vessel to import markets in Asia (the markets targeted for exports from Alaska) and potentially in other regions. DOE/FE has commissioned DOE’s National Energy Technology Laboratory (NETL) to conduct both studies. Potential Areas of Environmental Analysis For the upstream production study, DOE/FE has tentatively identified the following resource areas for analysis (although the following list is not intended to be comprehensive or to predetermine the potential impacts to be analyzed): Land use and visual resources; geology and soils; water resources; air quality and noise; ecological resources; cultural and paleontological resources; infrastructure; waste management; occupational and public health and safety; socioeconomics; transportation; and environmental justice. For the LCA, DOE/FE will examine the global nature of GHG emissions associated with exports of LNG from Alaska from a life cycle perspective, as stated previously. NEPA Process and Public Participation in the SEIS DOE/FE will prepare the SEIS in accordance with the Council on Environmental Quality (CEQ) regulations at 40 CFR parts 1500–1508 and DOE NEPA implementing procedures at 10 CFR part 1021. In accordance with 10 CFR 1021.311(f), a public scoping process is not required for a DOE-issued SEIS. DOE/FE will issue a notice in the Federal Register 17 DOE/FE previously has explained that a LCA is a method of accounting for cradle-to-grave GHG emissions over a single common denominator. DOE considers GHG emissions from all processes in the LNG supply chains—from the ‘‘cradle’’ when natural gas is extracted from the ground, to the ‘‘grave’’ when electricity is used by the consumer.
