Start Preamble

On October 9, 10, and 11, 2012, the Federal Energy Regulatory Commission (FERC or Commission) Office of Energy Projects staff, in cooperation with representatives of the U.S. Department of Agriculture Forest Service (Forest Service) and the U.S. Department of the Interior Bureau of Land Management (BLM), will hold three additional public scoping meetings to take comments on Jordan Cove Energy Project LP's (Jordan Cove) proposed liquefaction project in Coos County, Oregon, in Docket No. PF12-7-000, and Pacific Connector Gas Pipeline LP's (Pacific Connector) proposed pipeline project crossing portions of Klamath, Jackson, Douglas, and Coos Counties, Oregon, in Docket No. PF12-17-000. These meetings are part of our [1] pre-filing process prior to the production of an environmental impact statement (EIS) for these projects.

On August 2, 2012, the FERC issued a Notice of Intent to Prepare an Environmental Impact Statement for the Planned Jordan Cove Liquefaction and Pacific Connector Pipeline Projects, Requests for Comments on Environmental Issues, and Notice of Public Scoping Meetings (NOI). We previously held four public scoping meetings during the week of August 27-30, 2012 in Coos Bay, Roseburg, Klamath Falls, and Medford, Oregon. The BLM and Forest Service have issued their own separate supplemental NOI in the Federal Register on September 21, 2012, also announcing the three new public scoping meetings. The NOIs open the public scoping Start Printed Page 59394process, soliciting comments on the potential environmental impacts of the proposed projects. You may submit comments in written form or verbally at the public scoping meetings.[2] The FERC's NOI provided instructions on how to properly file written comments. Your comments will allow us to focus attention on environmental issues important to the public during preparation of the EIS. The scoping period will end on October 29, 2012.

The three new public scoping meetings are scheduled as follows:
