Three weeks after the date on the letter, I got this schedule notice from FERC, saying they plan to issue the final Environmental Impact Statement 18 December 2015, and they plan to rubberstamp the permit 17 March 2016, for Sabal Trail, Transco, and Florida Southeast Connection. So the opposition has made FERC slip the schedule a month.
This letter does mention a move for the Albany Compressor Station, but it looks to me like it’s referring to the previous site relocation.
