This notice identifies the Federal Energy Regulatory Commission staff's revised schedule for the completion of the environmental assessment (EA) for Texas Eastern Transmission, L.P.'s Cameron Extension Project. The first notice of schedule, issued on November 22, 2019, identified March 9, 2020 as the EA issuance date. On November 20, 2019, FERC staff requested additional environmental information to assist in its EA analysis regarding air modeling analysis and air quality screening of the proposed compressor station to demonstrate that emissions of criteria pollutants do not result in exceedance of the National Ambient Air Quality Standards. On February 20, 2020, Texas Eastern Transmission, L.P. filed the requested supplemental information and Commission staff is currently reviewing the information for completeness. Because this information was not provided in time to meet the original schedule, Commission staff has revised the schedule for issuance of the EA, as described below.
Schedule for Environmental Review
Issuance of the EA April 16, 2020
90-day Federal Authorization Decision Deadline July 15, 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.
In order to receive notification of the issuance of the EA and to keep track of all formal issuances and submittals in specific dockets, the Commission offers a free service called eSubscription.
