Liquefied Natural Gas Limited and Magnolia LNG LLC (Magnolia) announced that the United States Federal Energy Regulatory Commission (FERC) issued the Final Environmental Impact Statement (FEIS) for the Magnolia LNG (MLNG) project in Lake Charles, Louisiana, and the associated Kinder Morgan Louisiana Pipeline (KMLP) Lake Charles Expansion Project on 13 November 2015. Issuance of the FEIS represents the culmination of FERC Staff’s environmental and safety review of the proposed MLNG and KMLP projects. In completing the unified FEIS for the two projects, the FERC conducted a comprehensive environmental, safety and security review analyzing publicly available data, input from other federal and state agencies, comments from interested stakeholders, and information that both MLNG and KMLP provided regarding the construction and operation of the MLNG project and KMLP’s related natural gas pipeline infrastructure. In the FEIS, FERC Staff concludes that construction and operation of the proposed projects would result in limited adverse environmental impacts, but these impacts would be reduced to less‐than‐significant levels with the implementation of MLNG’s and KMLP’s proposed mitigations and the additional measures recommended in the FEIS.
