ACTION: Notice of intent. AGENCY: On April 15, 2021, the U.S. Department of Energy’s Office of Fossil Energy (DOE/FE) granted a request for rehearing of a final order issued to Alaska LNG Project LLC (Alaska LNG) for the export of liquefied natural gas (LNG) produced from Alaskan sources to non-free trade agreement countries, pursuant to the Natural Gas Act (NGA). In the Rehearing Order, DOE stated that it was granting rehearing for the purpose of conducting two Alaska-specific environmental studies (collectively, the Alaska environmental study proceeding). To this end, DOE intends to prepare a supplemental environmental impact statement (SEIS) for the Alaska environmental study proceeding (DOE/EIS–0512–S1), consistent with the National lotter on DSK11XQN23PROD with NOTICES1 SUMMARY: VerDate Sep<11>2014 17:12 Jul 01, 2021 Jkt 253001 Environmental Policy Act (NEPA). The SEIS will include analysis of potential environmental impacts associated with natural gas production on the North Slope of Alaska and a life cycle analysis (LCA) calculating the greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions for LNG exported from the proposed Alaska LNG Project. ADDRESSES: Documents related to the SEIS process will be posted at: https:// energy.gov/nepa/doeeis-0512-s1supplemental-environmental-impactstatement-alaska-lng-project. FOR FURTHER INFORMATION CONTACT: Questions concerning the SEIS or requests to be placed on the SEIS distribution list should be sent to: Brian Lavoie, U.S. Department of Energy (FE– 34), Office of Regulation, Analysis, and Engagement, Office of Fossil Energy, Forrestal Building, Room 3E–042, 1000 Independence Avenue SW, Washington, DC 20585; (202) 586–2459; brian.lavoie@hq.doe.gov. SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: Background On August 20, 2020, DOE issued DOE/FE Order No. 3643–A (the Alaska LNG Order) 1 to Alaska LNG Project LLC (Alaska LNG) under section 3(a) of the NGA.2 DOE/FE authorized Alaska LNG to export LNG produced from Alaskan sources to any country with which the United States has not entered into a free trade agreement (FTA) requiring national treatment for trade in natural gas, and with which trade is not prohibited by U.S. law or policy (nonFTA countries). Alaska LNG is authorized to export LNG in a volume equivalent to 929 billion cubic feet per year (Bcf/yr) of natural gas (2.55 Bcf per day), for a term of 30 years, with export operations required to commence within 12 years of the date that the Alaska LNG Order was issued. Exports will occur by vessel from a liquefaction facility to be constructed in the Nikiski area of the Kenai Peninsula in south central Alaska (Liquefaction Facility), which will be part of the proposed Alaska LNG Project.3 1 Alaska LNG Project LLC, DOE/FE Order No. 3643–A, FE Docket 14–96–LNG, Final Opinion and Order Granting Long-Term Authorization to Export Liquefied Natural Gas to Non-Free Trade Agreement Nations (Aug. 20, 2020), available at: https:// www.energy.gov/sites/default/files/2020/08/f77/ ord3643a.pdf [hereinafter Alaska LNG Order]. 2 15 U.S.C. 717b(a). The authority to regulate the imports and exports of natural gas, including liquefied natural gas, under section 3 of the NGA (15 U.S.C. 717b) has been delegated to the Assistant Secretary for FE in Redelegation Order No. S4– DEL–FE1–2021, issued on March 25, 2021. 3 See Alaska LNG Project LLC, DOE/FE Order No. 3643–B, FE Docket 14–96–LNG, Order on Rehearing (Apr. 15, 2021), available at: https:// www.energy.gov/sites/default/files/2021-04/ ord3643b.pdf [hereinafter Rehearing Order]. PO 00000 Frm 00022 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 Alaska Gasline Development Corporation (AGDC), an independent, public corporation of the State of Alaska, applied to the Federal Energy Regulatory Commission (FERC) for authorization to site, construct, and operate the Alaska LNG Project. As approved by FERC on May 21, 2020,4 the Alaska LNG Project includes the following three elements: (i) Producing natural gas from stranded resources on the North Slope of Alaska at a proposed natural gas treatment plant to be located on the North Slope; (ii) Transporting the natural gas on a proposed 800-mile long pipeline; and (iii) Liquefying the natural gas for export from the proposed Liquefaction Facility, which has a planned liquefaction capacity of 20 million metric tons per year of LNG (equivalent to approximately 929 Bcf/yr of natural gas).5 In sum, AGDC holds the FERC authorization for the Alaska LNG Project, and Alaska LNG holds the DOE authorization to export LNG from the Alaska LNG Project. Both the DOE and FERC authorizations have been challenged in the U.S. Court of Appeals for the District of Columbia Circuit (D.C. Circuit).6 Those lawsuits are ongoing and are currently subject to various pending procedural motions. To fulfill its obligations under NEPA,7 DOE/FE participated as a cooperating agency in FERC’s review of the Alaska LNG Project.8 FERC issued the final environmental impact statement (EIS) for the Alaska LNG Project on March 6, 2020,9 and DOE/FE adopted the final EIS on March 16, 2020 (DOE/EIS– 0512).10 Subsequently, DOE/FE issued the Alaska LNG Order, conditioning it on Alaska LNG’s compliance with the 165 environmental conditions adopted in the FERC Order (see supra note 4), among other requirements.11 4 Alaska Gasline Dev.
