Final EIS Issued for LNG Terminal Off Florida's East Coast

<>Two agencies, DOT's Maritime Administration and DHS' U.S. Coast Guard, today announced the Final Environmental Impact Statement is available for the Calypso LNG L.L.C. Liquefied Natural Gas Deepwater Port license application. The announcement triggers a 45-day comment period on the application to create a terminal in federal waters 8-10 miles off the east coast of Florida to the northeast of Port Everglades, in a water depth of 800-950 feet. Today's document says the facility would have an average throughput capacity of approximately 1.1 billion standard cubic feet per day and a peak delivery capacity of 1.9 bcsfd.

The public comment period ends Sept. 2. The two agencies have not yet announced the date and location of the final public hearing, but after that hearing, federal and state agencies and the Florida governor's office will have an opportunity to approve, disapprove, or notify the Maritime Administration of inconsistencies with state environmental protection, land and water use, and coastal zone management programs.

The FEIS, the application, comments, and associated documentation are available at www.regulations.gov under docket number USCG-2006-26009. Submissions to that docket should be addressed to: Department of Transportation, Docket Management Facility, 1200 New Jersey Ave. SE, West Building, Ground Floor, Room W12-140, Washington, DC 20590-0001, or they should be submitted via the regulations.gov Web site.
