Environmental Impact Statements (EISs)

Final EIS recommends approval of proposed Golden Pass LNG import terminal near Port Arthur, Texas
Staff's Golden Pass LNG Terminal final environmental impact statement concluded that the proposed project could meet federal safety standards, be operated safely, and have limited adverse environmental impacts.

The environmental impacts would be most significant during the construction period. However, mitigation measures proposed by the project applicant and required by FERC staff would substantially reduce the environmental impacts of the project.

FERC Commissioners will take into consideration staff's recommendations and the FEIS when they make a decision on the project.
