  • FERC has released the schedule for its environmental review of Floridian Natural Gas Storage’s (FNGS) proposed liquefaction and LNG Storage project near Indiantown in Martin County, Fla. FNGS proposes to amend its existing authorizations by changing one 4 Bcf full containment storage tank to a 1 Bcf single containment tank and by reducing the associated vaporization capacity proportionately from 400 MMcf per day to 100 MMcf per day. FNGS has not constructed any previously authorized facilities to date. FERC plans to issue its environmental assessment for the amended project on June 10, 2015. Other federal agencies having jurisdiction over the project will then have until September 8, 2015 to complete their review. FERC’s notice can be found here - http://elibrary.ferc.gov/idmws/common/opennat.asp?fileID=13854119, and the complete docket for FNGS’s amended project can be found on eLibrary under Docket No. CP13-541.
