Feds Want More Data on Trans-Pecos Pipeline

The Federal Energy Regulatory Agency has issued a 30-point Environmental Information Request for the Presidio Border Crossing Project to Trans-Pecos Pipeline, LLC.

Energy Transfer Partners, the developer of the pipeline, has 20 days to file a “complete response.”

Several of the requests refer to comments made during the designated comment period that ended Friday.

The pipeline builders must address water, native species, possibility of burial grounds, waste disposal, wetlands and other issues.

The letter, from Anthony J. Rana, environmental project manager of the Office of Energy Projects, also states that Trans-Pecos Pipeline’s environmental report does not adequately address Trans Pecos nonjurisdictional pipeline and associated facilities for purposes of providing a cumulative impacts analysis” and outlines six areas that the report failed to adequately cover.
