Delta LNG and Delta Express Pipeline Project; Louisiana
Federal Energy Regulatory Commission (FERC) announced its intent to prepare an EIS that evaluates the potential environmental impacts of constructing and operating the Delta LNG and Delta Express Pipeline Project, a liquefied natural gas (LNG) export terminal in Plaquemines Parish, Louisiana, and two parallel pipelines in a single 283-mile-long right-of-way in 14 parishes in Louisiana.
DOE is a cooperating agency in preparing DOE/EIS-0544. DOE, Office of Fossil Energy, has an obligation under Section 3 of the Natural Gas Act to authorize the import and export of natural gas, including LNG, unless it finds that the import or export is not consistent with the public interest. (DOE's participation as a cooperating agency and assignment of a document number are not a commitment that DOE will adopt or supplement the EIS.)
