  • In comments submitted to FERC regarding FERC’s review of its Guidance Manual for environmental reports prepared for Natural Gas Act applicants, the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency recommends that the Guidance Manual request LNG export project applicants (1) to provide information regarding the potential for increased natural gas production and the related environmental impacts due to their projects and (2) assess the greenhouse gas emissions implications of the project. EPA requests that the Guidance Manual refer to U.S. Department of Energy documents to provide guidance on these two issues.
