CP20–484–000 and CP20–485–000, respectively. ANR proposes to construct and operate one new greenfield compressor station (designated as the Turkey Creek Compressor Station) and modify a mainline valve in Evangeline Parish, Louisiana, and acquire a lease agreement between ANR and GLGT. ANR has executed binding precedent agreements with two shippers to transport up to 165,000 dekatherms per day of natural gas. GLGT proposes to abandon firm capacity by a lease agreement with ANR. No new construction is proposed as part of the Lease Capacity Abandonment Project; however, this is related to the application filed by ANR to construct and operate the Alberta Xpress Project. The draft EIS responds to comments that were received on the Commission’s December 4, 2020 environmental assessment (EA),1 provides additional discussion of climate change impacts in the region, and discloses downstream greenhouse gas emissions for the projects. With the exception of climate change impacts, the FERC staff concludes that approval of the proposed projects, with the mitigation measures recommended in this EIS, would not result in significant environmental impacts.

proposed by ANR Pipeline Company (ANR) and Great Lakes Gas Transmission 
Limited Partnership (GLGT) in Docket Nos. CP20-484-000 and CP20-485-
000, respectively. ANR proposes to construct and operate one new
