WASHINGTON, DC, Dec. 1 -- Construction of a proposed LNG terminal near Pascagoula, Miss., would have minimal environmental impact, the US Federal Energy Regulatory Commission's staff said in a final environmental impact statement.

Impacts would be most significant during construction of the Gulf LNG Clean Energy Project, which also would include a new pipeline to ship as much as 1.5 bcfd of gas out to three interconnection points, FERC said.

Gulf Energy LLC, which is building the terminal, sought FERC's approval to build a berth and unloading facilities capable of accommodating one LNG tanker, LNG transfer systems, two 160,000-cu m LNG storage tanks, 10 high-pressure submerged combustion vaporizers, vapor handling systems, hazard detection and response equipment, and ancillary buildings, utilities, and service facilities.

Gulf LNG Pipeline LLC separately requested FERC approval for a 5-mile, 36-in. gas sendout pipeline and associated support facilities, including three interconnects and meter stations, one pig launcher, and one pig receiver.
