This notice identifies the Federal Energy Regulatory Commission (Commission) staff's revised schedule for the completion of the environmental impact statement (EIS) for the Jordan Cove Energy Project. The first notice of schedule, issued on August 31, 2018, identified August 30, 2019 as the final EIS issuance date. The previous notice states, however, that the forecasted schedule assumes that the cooperating agencies will provide input on their areas of responsibility on a timely basis. Due to the funding lapse at certain Start Printed Page 8096federal agencies between December 22, 2018 and January 25, 2019, an extension is required for the cooperating agencies to complete their respective input. Staff has revised the schedule for issuance of the final EIS, based on an issuance of the draft EIS in March 2019.
Schedule for Environmental Review
Issuance of Notice of Availability of the final EIS—October 11, 2019
90-day Federal Authorization Decision Deadline—January 9, 2020
In an additional notice issued on August 31, 2018, the Commission identified November 29, 2019 as the anticipated final order issuance for the Jordon Cove Energy Project. Based on the revised final EIS schedule, the Commission currently anticipates issuing a final order for the project no later than:
Issuance of Final Order—January 9, 2020
If a schedule change becomes necessary, an additional notice will be provided so that the relevant agencies are kept informed of the project's progress.
