Notice of availability of the final environmental impact statement (EIS) on the proposed use of FPSO systems on the central and western GOM OCS.

The MMS prepared an EIS on FPSO systems which will be used in deepwater areas of the OCS in the GOM. The MMS based the EIS analyses on estimates of the kinds and amounts of activity onshore and offshore that could result from the deployment and use of FPSO systems to produce oil and gas in areas of the GOM where the present day oil pipeline system does not yet extend. The FPSO systems will produce the oil in the conventional fashion, but will store it on board rather than direct it into pipelines. The FPSO systems will be unloaded regularly by shuttle tankers which will transport the oil to Gulf Coast seaports.

You may obtain single copies of the final EIS, or a CD version, from the MMS, Gulf of Mexico OCS Region, Attention: Public Information Office (MS-5034), 1201 Elmwood Park Boulevard, Room 114, New Orleans, Louisiana 70123-2394, or by calling 1-800-200-GULF.
