(Reuters) – U.S. energy company Kinder Morgan Inc’s proposed Gulf liquefied natural gas (LNG) export terminal in Mississippi took a step toward receiving federal approval for construction on Thursday after staff at the federal energy regulator issued a draft environmental report.
In the report, known as an environmental impact statement, staff at the Federal Energy Regulatory Commission (FERC) concluded that construction and operation of the project would result in some adverse environmental impacts, but those impacts would be reduced to less-than-significant levels if the company follows the recommendations in the draft report.
