The U.S. Federal Energy Regulatory Commission issued a notice extending the release date for the final environmental impact statement on the proposed Aguirre Offshore GasPort project.
According to the original notice of schedule issued in May this year, FERC set December 19, 2014 as the final EIS issuance date, but after reviewing additional information from Aguirre regarding the proposed subsea pipeline, FERC has issued a new date for the EIS.
The information review and its incorporation into the final EIS requires a revised schedule, FERC said in its statement, delaying the date to February 20, 2015, with a 90-day Federal authorization decision deadline set for May 21, 2015.
The Aguirre GasPort will be located approximately four miles offshore the southern coast of Puerto Rico, near the towns of Salinas and Guayama and will utilize one of Excelerate Energy’s 150,900 m3 floating storage and regasification vessels.
