FERC Releases Draft EIS for Alaska LNG Project

FERC has released a draft environmental impact statement (EIS) for the proposed Alaska LNG Project proposed by the Alaska Gasline Development Corporation (AGDC). The Alaska LNG Project is comprised of “an 806.6-mile-long natural gas pipeline and associated above ground facilities, and a 20-million-metric-ton per annum liquefaction facility to commercialize the natural gas resources of Alaska’s North Slope.” The draft EIS “concludes that approval of the Project would result in a number of significant environmental impacts, but the majority of impacts would be less than significant based on the impact avoidance, minimization, and mitigation measures proposed by AGDC and those recommended by staff in the draft EIS. However, some of the adverse impacts would be significant even after the implementation of mitigation measures.”
