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:

Here is today's  FR notice   Environmental Impact Statements; Availability, etc.:CE FLNG, LLC, CE Pipeline, LLC; Notice of Intent To Prepare an Environmental Impact Statement for the Planned CE FLNG Project, Request for Comments on Environmental Issues, and Notice of Public Scoping Meetingtice of Public Scoping Meeting

Check out this description of this project:

CE FLNG plans to construct and operate a LNG export terminal, and
approximately 37 miles of 42-inch-diameter natural gas transmission
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
Comments on the scoping of the EIS and related issues are due JANUARY 6, 2014.

More Tagging tips:

A tag is a way to search for this diary. If someone is searching for "Barack Obama," is this a diary they'd be trying to find?

Use a person's full name, without any title. Senator Obama may become President Obama, and Michelle Obama might run for office.

If your diary covers an election or elected official, use election tags, which are generally the state abbreviation followed by the office. CA-01 is the first district House seat. CA-Sen covers both senate races. NY-GOV covers the New York governor's race.

Tags do not compound: that is, "education reform" is a completely different tag from "education". A tag like "reform" alone is probably not meaningful.

Consider if one or more of these tags fits your diary: Civil Rights, Community, Congress, Culture, Economy, Education, Elections, Energy, Environment, Health Care, International, Labor, Law, Media, Meta, National Security, Science, Transportation, or White House. If your diary is specific to a state, consider adding the state (California, Texas, etc). Keep in mind, though, that there are many wonderful and important diaries that don't fit in any of these tags. Don't worry if yours doesn't.
