EIS-0487: Draft Environmental Impact Statement

Freeport LNG Liquefaction Project, Brazoria County, Texas

Federal Energy Regulatory Commission (FERC), with DOE as a cooperating agency, issued a Draft EIS to analyze the potential environmental impacts of a proposal to construct and operate the Freeport Liquefied Natural Gas (LNG) Liquefaction Project, which would expand an existing LNG import terminal and associated facilities in Brazoria County, Texas, to enable the terminal to liquefy and export LNG. DOE, Office of Fossil Energy, has an obligation under Section 3 of the Natural Gas Act to authorize the import and export of natural gas, including LNG, unless it finds that the import or export is not consistent with the public interest.
