PUBLIC NOTICEInformational Open Houses and Public MeetingsFor the Delfin LNG LLC Natural Gas Deepwater Port License ApplicationDraft Environmental Impact Statement The U.S. Coast Guard and the Maritime Administration announce the availability of the Draft Environmental Impact Statement (EIS) for Delfin LNG LLC's proposed deepwater port. This notice requests public participation during a 45-day comment period and provides information on how to participate in this process. These comments will assist us in the preparation of the Final EIS. The Application, notices, supporting materials, comments, and the Draft EIS may be viewed at the eRulemaking Portal website: http://www.regulations.gov under docket number USCG-2015-0472. Additional information on the shoreside facilities and pipelines associated with the project can be found on the Federal Energy Regulatory Commission website www.ferc.gov eLibrary docket numbers CP15-490 and CP16-20. The Draft EIS was noticed in the Federal Register on Friday, July 15, 2016. Delfin LNG, LLC, a wholly owned subsidiary of Fairwood Peninsula Energy Corporation, seeks a Federal license under the Deepwater Port Act of 1974, as amended, to own, construct, operate, and eventually decommission a deepwater port for the liquefaction and export of liquefied natural gas (LNG). The proposed deepwater port would be located in Federal waters within the Outer Continental Shelf, West Cameron Area, West Addition Protraction Area (Gulf of Mexico) approximately 37.4 to 40.8 nautical miles off the coast of Cameron Parish, Louisiana, in water depths ranging from approximately 64 to 72 feet (19.5 to 21.9 meters). Natural gas would be delivered to four moored floating LNG vessels (FLNGVs) through two existing offshore natural gas pipelines of the former U-T Offshore System (UTOS) and the High Island Offshore System (HIOS). A 700-foot 42-inch diameter new pipeline would be constructed to bypass a platform at West Cameron lease block 167 and connect the UTOS and HIOS pipelines. Four new 30-inch diameter pipeline laterals, each approximately 6,400 feet in length, would connect the HIOS pipeline to each of the FLNGVs. Feed gas would be supplied through the new pipeline laterals to each of the FLNGVs where it would be super-cooled to produce LNG. The LNG would be stored onboard the FLNGVs and transferred via ship-to-ship transfer to properly certified LNG trading carriers. Each of the FLNGVs would be semi-permanently moored to four new weathervaning tower yoke mooring systems. The onshore facility would consist of the return to FERC-jurisdictional service of approximately 1.1 miles of the existing UTOS pipeline; the addition of four onshore compressors totaling 120,000 horsepower of new compression; activation of associated metering and regulation facilities; and the installation of new supply header pipelines. The supply header would consist of 0.25 mile of new 42-inch diameter pipeline to connect the former UTOS line to the new meter station and 0.6 mile of new twin 30-inch pipelines between Transco Station 44 and the new compressor station site.
