Expiration date: 3/16/2015

Full Public Notice    Attachment A    Attachment B    Attachment C

The request for authorization under Section 103 of the Marine Protection, Research, and Sanctuaries Act (MPRSA) of 1972 relates to the proposed offshore disposal of the authorized 1,188,000 million cubic yards of dredged material that will be generated during development of the new Phase II berthing area near the intersection of the Intracoastal Waterway and Freeport Harbor Channel.

Galveston District issued Permit No. SWG-2013-00147 to Freeport LNG for the Liquefaction Project and Phase II Developments on 23 September 2014.  Among other provisions, the Corps permit authorized the dredging of 1,188,000 cubic yards of material from the Phase II LNG berthing area for placement into dredged material placement area (DMPA) No. 1.  Through recent discussions with the Corps, Freeport LNG discovered that DMPA No. 1 is not available for disposal of this material.  Subsequently, Freeport LNG performed a detailed alternatives analysis, in which they concluded that offshore disposal is their only practicable viable option.

Enclosed are Attachment A - Section 103 Environmental Analysis, Attachment B - Dredging Plan, and Attachment C - Freeport LNG Dock 2 Dredging Contaminant Assessment report.
