CHARACTER OF WORK:  The applicant has requested Department of the Army authorization to construct, install, maintain and operate new facilities and make modifications to existing facilities to reverse the flow on a portion of Texas Eastern’s Line 40 mainline for Texas Eastern to provide Venture Global with 1,260,000 dekatherms per day of firm natural gas transportation service from receipt points on Texas Eastern’s system in Zone ELA to an interconnection with a pipeline lateral to be constructed, owned and operated by Gator Express (the Gator Express Pipeline), with ultimate delivery to the Plaquemines LNG Terminal.  The project is needed to provide the necessary natural gas pipeline infrastructure to ensure the firm transportation of natural gas to the Plaquemines LNG Terminal that Venture Global is seeking.  Specifically, the applicant has requested authorization to clear, grade, excavate, and place fill to 1) abandon an existing 2.2mile pipeline in place and construct a 3.0 mile natural gas pipeline replacement in Pointe Coupee Parish, 2) construct a new compressor station in Pointe Coupee Parish, 3) abandon in place an existing gas turbine compressor unit and install another gas turbine compressor unit at the existing White Castle Compressor Station in Iberville Parish, 4) abandon in place an existing gas turbine compressor unit and install another gas turbine compressor unit at the existing Larose Compressor Station in Lafourche Parish, 5) complete M&R equipment upgrades to the Gator Express M&R facility to be constructed on a platform installed in Barataria Bay in Plaquemines Parish, and 6) construct two contractor yards in West Baton Rouge Parish.  The proposed project will require approximately 4,491 cubic yards of fill material placed in wetlands.  Activities will also require the excavation of approximately 821 cubic yards of material, in wetlands.  Following construction, areas temporarily impacted by the project will be restored to pre-construction grade and allowed to revegetate.  Project implementation would temporarily impact approximately 2.69 acres of PEM wetlands, 0.01 of an acre of PSS wetlands, and 0.16 of an acre of PFO wetlands.  In addition, approximately 0.75 of an acre of PEM, 0.03 of an acre of PSS, and 0.55 of an acre of PFO wetlands will be permanently impacted. 

MITIGATION:  As compensation for unavoidable wetland impacts, the applicant has proposed to offset those impacts by providing compensatory mitigation at a Corps approved mitigation bank within the watershed of impact
