FERC Releases Environment Assessment for Sabine Pass Expansion

Today, FERC released its environment assessment (EA) for Sabine Pass LNG’s proposed expansion project at its export terminal in Cameron Parish, La.  The expansion involves construction of two new LNG liquefaction trains (Trains 5 and 6) which would increase the Sabine Pass terminal’s LNG production capacity by 503 Bcf/year.  The project also involves expansion of the existing interconnecting pipeline system to enable it to provide an additional 1.5 Bcf/day of firm reverse flow capacity.  The EA concludes that approval of the proposed expansion, with appropriate mitigating measures, would not constitute a major federal action significantly affecting the quality of the human environment. Comments on the EA are due January 12, 2015.
