ANCHORAGE – The Bureau of Land Management (BLM) is announcing an extension of the public scoping period for the Greater Mooses Tooth 2 (GMT2) draft supplemental environmental impact statement (EIS) to May 17, 2018.
“At the request of our stakeholders, we have decided to extend the comment period from May 7 to May 17, 2018.” stated Karen Mouritsen, BLM Alaska Acting State Director.
On March 29, 2018, the BLM published a Notice of Intent in the Federal Register to request comments for the draft supplemental EIS that analyzes an application for oil and gas development of the GMT2 production pad. This Notice opened a 45-day public scoping period on the draft EIS supplementing an earlier analysis of the project in the BLM’s 2004 Alpine Satellite Development Plan. Under the preferred alternative identified in the draft statement, the associated pipeline and access road would cross both Kuukpik Corporation-owned lands and federally-managed lands within the NPR-A. The infrastructure would also connect to the Greater Mooses Tooth 1 development, which is eight miles away.[xyz-ihs snippet=”Adsense-responsive”]Comments on the GMT2 Draft Supplemental EIS may be submitted by any of the following methods:
