The Federal Energy Regulatory Commission has issued an environmental assessment for the proposed Kenai LNG cool down project.

FERC said the EA is not a decision document but presents staff analysis of environmental issues for the commission to consider.

The EA, released Sept. 3, has a 90-day federal authorization decision deadline of Dec. 2.

Comments are due Oct. 5 by 5 p.m. eastern time.

The cool down project was proposed by Trans-Foreland Pipeline Co., which wants to bring parts of the Kenai liquefied natural gas plant out of warm idle to allow for import of LNG with the goal of providing up to 7 million standard cubic feet per day of natural gas to Trans-Forelandís affiliated Kenai Refinery.

In an April 2019 project description the company said Trans-Foreland Pipeline Co. owns the Kenai LNG Plant, which is operated by Trans-Forelandís affiliate Tesoro Logistics GP. Trans-Foreland is a wholly owned subsidiary of Tesoro Alaska Co. and since 2018 has been part of Marathon Petroleum Corp.

The project includes installation, construction and operation of a new boil-off gas booster compressor unit, trim vaporizers, ancillary facilities, additional LNG transfer system valves and equipment to manage existing BOG facilities
