Because of damage in the area due to Hurricane Rita, the staff of the Federal Energy Regulatory Commission (Commission) is canceling its planned public comment meetings in Vinton, Louisiana and Port Arthur, Texas for the Draft Environmental Impact Statement (EIS) for the Port Arthur LNG Project until further notice. However, we are extending the period for public comment by 60 days. Comments are now due on December 16, 2005.
As a reminder, any person wishing to comment on the draft EIS may do so. To ensure consideration prior to a Commission decision on the proposal, it is important that we receive your comments before the date specified below. Please carefully follow these instructions to ensure that your comments are received in time and properly recorded:

- Label one copy of the comments for the attention of Gas Branch 2, PJ11.2; and
