FERC Releases Cameron LNG DEIS

FERC Releases Cameron LNG DEIS

The Federal Energy Regulatory Commission (FERC) has prepared a draft environmental impact statement (DEIS) for the Cameron liquefaction project proposed by Cameron LNG and Cameron Interstate Pipeline.

Cameron is requesting authorization to export 12 million tons of  LNG per year from its terminal in Cameron and Calcasieu Parishes, Louisiana.

The draft EIS assesses the potential environmental effects of the construction and operation of the Cameron Liquefaction Project in accordance with the requirements of the National Environmental Policy Act (NEPA).

The FERC staff concludes that approval of the proposed Project, with the mitigation measures recommended in the EIS, would ensure that impacts in the Project area would be avoided or minimized and would not be significant,” FERC said in a statement.

FERC’s notice of the draft environmental impact statement can be found here.
