The staff of the Federal Energy Regulatory Commission (FERC or Commission) will conduct additional public scoping meetings as part of their preparation of an environmental impact statement (EIS) for the Alaska LNG Project involving construction and operation of facilities by Alaska Gasline Development Corporation; BP Alaska LNG, LLC; Conoco Phillips Alaska LNG Company; ExxonMobil Alaska LNG, LLC; and TransCanada Alaska Midstream, LP (Applicants) in Alaska.
More information about the Commission's EIS and the Alaska LNG Project is available in the Notice of Intent to Prepare an Environmental Impact Statement for the Planned Alaska LNG Project and Request for Comments on Environmental Issues (NOI), issued March 4, 2015. The NOI describes the scoping process that is under way seeking public participation in the environmental review of this project. An initial notice announcing public scoping meetings was issued on October 8, 2015. This supplemental notice announces additional public scoping meetings, listed on page 2, to provide an opportunity to submit verbal comments in addition to, or in lieu of, written comments on issues of environmental concern related to the Alaska LNG Project. Both written and verbal comments receive equal consideration. Please note that the scoping period will close on December 4, 2015.
