FERC issues draft EIS for Magnolia LNG

FERC issues draft EIS for Magnolia LNG

Liquefied Natural Gas Limited informed that the United States Federal Energy Regulatory Commission issued the draft environmental impact statement for the Magnolia LNG project.

In completing the work necessary to issue the DEIS, the FERC analysed publicly available data and data provided by both Magnolia LNG and Kinder Morgan Louisiana Pipeline associated with the construction and operation of the Magnolia LNG project and natural gas pipeline infrastructure required to deliver natural gas to the operating liquefaction terminal, the company said in a statement.

The FERC staff concluded that construction and operation of the proposed projects would result in limited adverse environmental impacts, but these impacts would be reduced to less-than-significant levels with the implementation of Magnolia LNG’s and KMLP’s proposed mitigations and the additional measures recommended in the DEIS.

FERC set 8 September 2015 as the deadline for receipt of public comments on the DEIS. Based on the Notice of Schedule for Environmental Review, the final environmental impact statement is expected to be issued by FERC on 16 November 2015.

Magnolia LNG project is located in Lake Charles Louisiana and will have a capacity of 8 million tons per year of liquefied natural gas.
