Eagle LNG Partners Jacksonville II LLC; Application for Long-Term, Multi-Contract Authorization To Export Liquefied Natural Gas to Non-Free Trade Agreement Nations
Document Number: 2017-14061
Type: Notice
Date: 2017-07-05
Agency: Department of Energy
The Office of Fossil Energy (FE) of the Department of Energy (DOE) gives notice of receipt of an application (Application), filed on June 15, 2017, by Eagle LNG Partners Jacksonville II LLC (Eagle Maxville), requesting long-term, multi-contract authorization to export domestically produced liquefied natural gas (LNG) in a volume equivalent to 7.7 million cubic feet per day of natural gas, or approximately 0.01 billion cubic feet (Bcf) per day (2.8 Bcf per year). Eagle Maxville seeks authorization to export this LNG from its LNG production and storage facility in Jacksonville, Duval County, Florida (the Maxville Facility), which is anticipated to begin commercial operation in September 2017. Eagle Maxville requests authorization to export this LNG to countries with which trade is not prohibited by U.S. law or policy, including both countries with which the United States has entered into a free trade agreement (FTA) requiring national treatment for trade in natural gas (FTA countries) and all other countries (non-FTA countries). At the Maxville Facility, Eagle Maxville anticipates it will process domestically produced natural gas into LNG, temporarily store the produced LNG, and load the LNG into cryogenic transport trailers or approved ISO IMO7-TVAC-ASME LNG (ISO) containers for transportation by truck to port facilities for transfer into vessels or other ocean-going container ships. Eagle Maxville is requesting this authorization on its own behalf and as agent for other entities who hold title to the natural gas at the time of export. Eagle Maxville requests the authorization for a 20-year term to commence on the earlier date of the first export or five years from the date of a final order granting export authorization. Eagle Maxville filed the Application under section 3 of the Natural Gas Act (NGA). Additional details can be found in Eagle Maxville's Application, posted on the DOE/FE Web site at https://www.energy.gov/fe/downloads/eagle-lng- partners-jacksonville-ii-llc-fe-dkt-no-17-79-lng. Protests, motions to intervene, notices of intervention, and written comments are invited.

Pick-Sloan Missouri Basin Program-Eastern Division-Rate Order No. WAPA-180
Document Number: 2017-13981
Type: Notice
Date: 2017-07-03
Agency: Department of Energy, Western Area Power Administration
Western Area Power Administration (WAPA) is proposing revised rates for Pick-Sloan Missouri Basin ProgramEastern Division (P-SMBP ED) firm power and firm peaking power service, and a new formula rate for sales of surplus products. Current firm power and firm peaking power service rates, under Rate Schedules P-SED-F12 and P-SED-FP12, are in effect through December 31, 2019. WAPA is proposing to lower the overall charges for firm power and firm peaking power service by 19 percent, as a result of rebalancing the charge components in formula-based Rate Schedules P-SED-F12 and P- SED-FP12 by reducing the drought adder component, increasing the base component, and removing the voltage discount. The proposed rates will provide sufficient revenue to pay all annual costs, including interest expense, and repay investments within the allowable periods. In addition, WAPA is proposing a new formula rate for the sale of surplus products under Rate Schedule P-SED-M1. This new rate schedule will allow for the sale of generation and generation- related products in excess of WAPA's P-SMBPED firm power obligations at market rates. WAPA will prepare a brochure providing detailed information on these proposed rates prior to the public information forums listed below. This brochure will be posted to WAPA's Web site at https://www.wapa.gov/regions/UGP/rates/Pages/2018-firm-rate- adjustment.aspx. If approved, the proposed rates, under Rate Schedules P-SED-F13, P-SED-FP13, and P-SED-M1 would become effective on January 1, 2018, and would remain in effect through December 31, 2022, or until superseded. Publication of this Federal Register notice begins the formal process for the proposed rate adjustment and new sale of surplus products formula rate.
Loveland Area Projects-Rate Order No. WAPA-179
Document Number: 2017-13980
Type: Notice
Date: 2017-07-03
Agency: Department of Energy, Western Area Power Administration
The Western Area Power Administration (WAPA) is proposing revised rates for the Loveland Area Projects (LAP) firm electric service and modifications to the existing rate schedule for Sale of Surplus Products. Current firm electric service rates, under Rate Schedule L-F10, are in effect through December 31, 2019, and the formula rate for the sale of surplus products, under Rate Schedule L- M1, is in effect through September 30, 2021. LAP consists of the Fryingpan-Arkansas Project (Fry-Ark) and the Pick-Sloan Missouri Basin Program (P-SMBP)Western Division (WD), which were integrated for marketing and rate-making purposes in 1989. WAPA is proposing to lower the overall LAP firm electric service charges by 14 percent, as a result of rebalancing the charge components in formula-based Rate Schedule L-F10 by reducing the drought adder component and increasing the base component. The proposed rates will provide sufficient revenue to pay all annual costs, including interest expense, and repay investments within the allowable periods. In addition, WAPA is proposing to modify Rate Schedule L-M1, which allows for the sale of generation and generation-related products in excess of LAP's firm electric service obligations, to add ``energy'' as a surplus product. WAPA will prepare a brochure providing detailed information on these proposed rates prior to the public information forums listed below. This brochure will be posted to WAPA's Web site at: https:// www.wapa.gov/regions/RM/rates/Pages/2018-Rate-AdjustmentFirm- Power.aspx. If approved, the proposed rates under Rate Schedules L-F11 and L-M2 would become effective on January 1, 2018, and would remain in effect through December 31, 2022, or until superseded. Publication of this Federal Register notice begins the formal process for the proposed rate adjustment and proposed rate modifications.

Energy Conservation Program: Energy Conservation Standards for Dedicated-Purpose Pool Pump Motors; Notice of Public Meeting
Document Number: 2017-13928
Type: Notice
Date: 2017-07-03
Agency: Department of Energy, Office of Energy Efficiency and Renewable Energy
On January 18, 2017, the U.S. Department of Energy (``DOE'') published in the Federal Register a direct final rule to establish new energy conservation standards for dedicated purpose pool pumps. These standards did not directly address the efficiency of the motors used in dedicated-purpose pool pumps, particularly in replacement applications. Interested stakeholders have encouraged DOE to initiate a working group to specifically address dedicated-purpose pool pump motors that can be used in replacement applications. Therefore, DOE is announcing a public meeting to gather data and information that could lead to the consideration of energy conservation standards for dedicated-purpose pool pump (DPPPs) motors. The meeting will be held on August 10, 2017.
