Tellurian’s proposed 37-mile Driftwood Pipeline natural gas transportation project cleared a draft environmental review by the Federal Energy Regulatory Commission, advancing toward a key permit for construction, reports S&P Global.

FERC staff determined in a May 13 draft environmental impact statement that the project would result in some “adverse environmental impacts” but that those would not be significant with recommended mitigation measures. The permitting review stopped short of drawing conclusions about the potential climate impacts of the project.

The Line 200 and Line 300 project, which would supply gas to Tellurian’s proposed Driftwood LNG terminal in Louisiana, would involve dual 42-inch diameter pipelines and a 211,200-horsepower electric compressor station. Read the entire story.
