This notice identifies the Federal Energy Regulatory Commission staff's revised schedule for the completion of the environmental assessment (EA) for Bluewater Gas Storage, LLC's (Bluewater) Bluewater Compression Project. The first notice of schedule, issued on July 19, 2019 identified December 2, 2019 as the EA issuance date. Commission staff identified additional data required to assess alternatives, visual impacts, and other resources areas and issued data requests on November 6 and November 14, 2019. Bluewater filed responses on November 12 and November 22, 2019 and stated that updated exhibits would be filed the week of December 2, 2019. As a result, staff has revised the schedule for issuance of the EA. The revised schedule for the EA assumes Bluewater will meet its commitment to provide complete responses to outstanding data requests on the dates it has identified.
Schedule for Environmental Review
Issuance of Notice of Availability of the EA—January 17, 2020
90-day Federal Authorization Decision Deadline—April 17, 2020
