Freeport LNG Development – environmental statement

On 8 June 2004, the Federal Energy Regulatory Commission (FERC) published a Notice announcing availability of the final environmental impact statement (EIS) for the construction and operation of the liquefied natural gas (LNG) import terminal and pipeline proposed by Freeport LNG Development, LP. The proposal includes LNG ship docking and unloading facilities in Brazoria County, Texas.

The final EIS was prepared to satisfy the requirements of the National Environmental Policy Act (NEPA). It evaluates alternatives, including system alternatives, alternative sites for the LNG import terminal, and pipeline alternatives. It addresses the potential environmental effects of the construction and operation of facilities in Brazoria County, Texas. The Notice, 69 Fed. Reg. 31988, states that “approval of the Freeport LNG Project, with appropriate mitigating measures as recommended, would have limited adverse environmental impact”.

The purpose of the Freeport LNG Project is to provide the facilities necessary to deliver LNG to intra-state shippers, including the Dow Chemical Company and ConocoPhillips, at the proposed Stratton Ridge Meter Station by 2007. Freeport’s proposed LNG facilities would re-gasify and transport up to 1.5 billion cubic feet of natural gas per day.
