Abstract: On March 7, 1978, Southwest Gas Corporation filed with the Federal Energy Regulatory Commission (FERC) and on March 8, 1978, with the Public Service Commission of Nevada (PSCN) its intent to construct a onebillion cubit foot (1 BcO LNG storage tank and associated equipment to liquefy 5.0 MMSCF/Day of pipeline gas and vaporize 70.0 MMSCF/Day of LNG for peak shaving service. This facility was to be constructed on 67.4 acres of land in Lyon County, Nevada, approximately 12 miles east of Dayton. The total cost for this facility was estimated at 19.2 million. On February 8, 1979, the Materials Transportation Bureau (MTB) of the Department of Transportation issued a Notice of Proposed Rulemaking (NPRM) for Title 49 of the Code of Federal Regulations, part 193, Liquefied Natural Gas Facilities, Federal Safety Standards. This NPRM contained a seismic constraint (para. 193.111) that prohibited this facility at the Dayton site because of its location within one mile of a fault.
