The Federal Energy Regulatory Commission (FERC) has released its Environmental Assessment (EA) for EcoEléctrica’s proposed LNG pipeline.
The pipeline will deliver LNG from the company’s import terminal in Peñuelas, Puerto Rico, to a planned non-FERC jurisdictional LNG truck loading facility for delivery to large end-users to use as fuel.
The assessment concludes that if EcoEléctrica constructs and operates the proposed facilities in accordance with its application and recommended mitigation measures, approval of the project would not constitute a major federal action significantly affecting the quality of the human environment.
It was recommended that the FERC issue an order containing a finding of no significant impact and the inclusion of the mitigation measures recommended in the assessment.
