Application Type: Extension of License Term. b. Project No: 9821–107. c. Date Filed: May 26, 2021. 7 There is one response per respondent for each activity in this information collection. 8 Commission staff estimates that the average industry hour4ly cost for this information collection is approximated by the current FERC 2021 average hourly costs for wages and benefits, i.e., $87.00/ hour. 9 The previously reported 33 responses associated with Comprehensive Plans were incorrect and not consistent in how we have approached the number of respondents for this Information Collection. As a result, the total number of hours associated with the Comprehensive Plans requirement was moved to the total number of hours associated with the application process. The Commission does not break down pieces of this process (as it is all considered one application) and so this edit was made for consistency across the information collection.

The Commission will use this EIS in its decision-making process to determine whether the project is in the public convenience and necessity. The schedule for preparation of the EIS is discussed in the Schedule for Environmental Review section of this notice. As part of the National Environmental Policy Act (NEPA) review process, the Commission takes into account concerns the public may have about proposals and the environmental impacts that could result whenever it considers the issuance of a Certificate of Public Convenience and Necessity. This gathering of public input is referred to as ‘‘scoping.’’ By notice issued on July 24, 2020, in Docket No. PF20–3–000, the Commission opened a scoping period during Transco’s pre-filing process; and staff intends to prepare an EIS that will address the concerns raised during that scoping period as well as comments received in response to this notice. Therefore, the Commission requests comments on potential alternatives and impacts, and any relevant information, studies, or analyses of any kind concerning impacts affecting the quality of the human environment. To ensure that your comments are timely and properly recorded, please submit your comments so that the Commission receives them in Washington, DC on or before 5:00 p.m. Eastern Time on November 19, 2021. Further details on how to submit comments are provided in the Public Participation section of this notice. As mentioned above, the Commission previously opened a scoping period which expired on August 24, 2020. All substantive written and oral comments provided during scoping will be addressed in the EIS. Therefore, if you submitted comments on this Project to the Commission during the previous scoping process, you do not need to file those comments again. If you are a landowner receiving this notice, a pipeline company representative may contact you about the acquisition of an easement to construct, operate, and maintain the proposed facilities. The company would seek to negotiate a mutually acceptable easement agreement. You are not required to enter into an agreement. However, if the Commission approves the Project, the Natural Gas Act conveys the right of eminent domain to the company. Therefore, if you and the company do not reach an easement agreement, the pipeline company could initiate condemnation proceedings in court. In such instances, compensation E:\FR\FM\28OCN1.SGM 28OCN1
