FERC Announces Plans to Revise Its Draft EIS for Downeast LNG

FERC issued an update yesterday on the Commission’s regulatory review of the proposed Downeast LNG import project. In its update, FERC stated that it is gathering additional information to develop a Revised Draft Environmental Impact Statement (DEIS) for the Downeast LNG project. This Revised DEIS would address changes to the Pipeline and Hazardous Materials Safety Administration’s safety regulations for LNG facilities. Prior to issuing the Revised DEIS, however, the Commission will open a scoping comment period to receive new comments on the proposed project to assist in guiding the Revised DEIS. The project update is available in FERC’s eLibrary under Docket No. CP07-52.
