FERC Releases Environmental Assessment for Proposed Elba Island LNG Export Terminal

Today, FERC released its Environmental Assessment (EA) for the proposed Elba Island liquefaction and LNG export terminal near Savannah, Ga.  Kinder Morgan affiliates Elba Liquefaction Company, LLC, Southern LNG Company, LLC, and Elba Express Company, LLC are the sponsors of the project.  The EA concludes that that if the Companies construct and operate the facilities as proposed, with certain mitigation measures recommended by Staff, approval of the project would not constitute a major federal action significantly affecting the quality of the human environment.  FERC Staff recommends that a Commission order authorizing the project contain a finding of no significant impact and include the mitigation measures proposed by Staff.
