Start Preamble March 2, 2007.

The staff of the Federal Energy Regulatory Commission (FERC or Commission) has prepared this Environmental Assessment (EA) to discuss the environmental impacts involving the operation of facilities for the existing Temple LNG Plant proposed by UGI LNG, Inc. (UGI LNG) in the above referenced docket. The proposed project is located in Berks County, Pennsylvania.

Because the Temple LNG Plant is an existing facility the EA focused on the operation of the proposed project, the cryogenic design aspects of the plant and public safety.

This EA has been prepared to comply with the requirements of the National Environmental Policy Act (NEPA), the Council of Environmental Quality (CEQ) regulations for implementing NEPA (Title 40, Code of Federal Regulations [CFR], sections 1500-1508), and the Commission's regulations (18 CFR 380). Start Printed Page 10512The staff concludes that approval of this proposal would not constitute a major Federal action significantly affecting the quality of the human environment.

The EA has been placed in the public files of the FERC and is available for public inspection at: Federal Energy Regulatory Commission, Public Reference, 888 First Street, NE., Room 2A, Washington, DC 20426, (202) 502-8371.
