The Federal Energy Regulatory Commission is taking input until Nov. 14 on what should be covered in an environmental assessment (EA) on the Lone Star Project, which involves construction and operation of facilities by Tennessee Gas Pipeline Co. LLC in San Patricio and Jackson counties, Texas.
The commission will use this EA in its decision-making process to determine whether the project is in the public convenience and necessity.
Tennessee proposes to construct and operate the following facilities as part of the Lone Star Project:
- a new 10,915 horsepower compressor station (CS 3A) in San Patricio County, Texas; and
- a new 10,500 horsepower compressor station (CS 11A) in Jackson County, Texas.
The proposed facilities would be on Tennessee’s existing Line 100 and would allow Tennessee to provide firm incremental transportation service of up to 300,000,000 cubic feet per day to the Corpus Christi Liquefaction LLC facility currently under construction in San Patricio County, Texas.
