FERC completes final EIS for Magnolia LNG
The United States Federal Energy Regulatory Commission (FERC) prepared the final supplemental environmental impact statement (EIS) for LNG Limited’s Magnolia LNG project’s proposed capacity amendment.
The project requested authorization to increase the liquefied natural gas production capacity of the Magnolia LNG project in Calcasieu Parish, Louisiana, from the initially approved 8 mtpa to 8,8 mtpa.
The increased LNG production capacity would be achieved through the optimization of Magnolia LNG’s final design for the terminal, including additional and modified process equipment.
The final supplemental EIS assesses the potential changes to the air and noise emissions and the reliability and safety engineering analyses associated with the construction and operation of the added volumes.
The FERC staff concludes that the proposed modifications, with the additional mitigation measures recommended in the supplemental EIS, would continue to avoid or reduce impacts to less than significant levels.
