I've been trying to graft the outputs of my daily Federal Register reading habits onto the DK Greenroots group in recent weeks with notice of pertinent FR listings that merit attention.
In today's FR though, I found one notice which stands out as interesting in particular and worthy of a larger audience being aware of this project -- a 'Floating LNG terminal' and associated pipeline project, planned for the Mississippi Delta near Venice, LA.
Here is the general location area: http://goo.gl/...

approximately 37 miles of 42-inch-diameter natural gas transmission
pipeline in Plaquemines Parish, Louisiana. The LNG terminal would be
located along the east bank of the Mississippi River at approximately
mile marker 12.5, northeast of the community of Venice. CE FLNG plans
to moor two self-propelled, natural gas liquefaction, storage, and
offloading vessels at the terminal. The floating LNG (FLNG) vessels
would each be about 1,100 feet long, 180 feet wide, and extend up to 80
feet above the waterline. The FLNG vessels would be capable of
producing up to 8 million tons per annum of LNG and storing 250,000
cubic meters of LNG.
Approximately 80 to 130 LNG carriers (LNGC), with cargo capacities
ranging from 125,000 to 170,000 cubic meters, would call upon the
terminal each year during operation. CE FLNG plans to use tug boats to
maneuver the FLNG vessels and LNGCs. During storm events, the vessels
could leave the terminal for the Gulf of Mexico. SNIP
