Type: Notice
Date: 2014-08-26
Agency: Department of Energy
The Department of Energy (DOE) announces its intent to prepare an environmental impact statement (EIS) to assess the potential environmental impacts from its proposed federal action of granting a Presidential permit to Champlain VT, LLC, doing business as TDI-New England (TDI-NE; the Applicant), to construct, operate, maintain, and connect a new electric transmission line across the U.S.-Canada border in northern Vermont. The New England Clean Power Link Environmental Impact Statement (DOE/EIS-0503) will address potential environmental impacts from the proposed action and reasonable alternatives. The U.S. Army Corps of Engineers (USACE)New England District, the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA)Region 1 (New England), and the U.S. Coast Guard (USCG) are cooperating agencies in the preparation of the EIS. The purpose of this Notice of Intent (NOI) is to inform the public about the proposed action, announce public scoping meetings, and solicit public comments regarding the scope of the EIS. Because the proposed project would involve actions in floodplains and wetlands, in accordance with DOE regulations, the EIS will include a floodplain and wetland assessment.
Agency Information Collection Extension
Document Number: 2014-20269
Type: Notice
Date: 2014-08-26
Agency: Department of Energy
EIA has submitted to the Office of Management and Budget (OMB) for clearance, a proposal for expanded collection of information under the provisions of the Paperwork Reduction Act of 1995, for Form EIA- 914, the Monthly Natural Gas Production Report (OMB-1905-0205). EIA requests a three-year extension of this collection with changes to accommodate the expanded Form EIA-914. The proposed data collection will expand the collection of monthly natural gas production from seven geographical areas to twenty-one, and will add collection of crude oil and lease condensate by American Petroleum Institute (API) gravity (crude oil and lease condensate will be collected as a single volume). The data collected will be used to obtain a more accurate and timely estimate of production of natural gas, crude oil, and lease condensate with much greater geographic detail. The proposed expansion of Form EIA-914 will be used by federal and state agencies, industry analysts, and the general public to more effectively monitor and assess natural gas, crude oil, and lease condensate supplies, and by Congress for legislative debate.
