FERC to meet in in Nikiski, Healy on LNG draft environmental statement

Officials from the Federal Energy Regulatory Commission will hold two public meetings on Wednesday, Sept. 11, 2019, to solicit comments on Draft Environmental Impact Statement on the Alaska LNG Project.

The Alaska LNG Project would deliver a supply of natural gas from the North Slope fields to Nikiski for export, and would have some in-state availability, although most would be sold internationally. The Alaska Gasline Development Authority is the lead agency developing the project.

The meetings will be held simultaneously in Nikiski at the Nikiski Recreation Center – Banquet Hall, and in Healy at the Tri-Valley Community Center. Both meetings are scheduled from 5-8 pm.

The final environmental impact statement is scheduled for March 6, 2020. More information can be found at this link.

  • Build Susitna Now. And let’s get going with construction of the Ramparts dam while we are at it.

    Drive on.

    • Joe is your comment sarcasm for your giving in on the Full PFD ? Has your union clients already have a labor agreement in place?

      • Mr. Martin Jr.: Have you done any thinking about how to protect the PFD, much less actual work to protect the dividend, or are you just another whiny sad sack contemplating how you will spend the money and criticizing anyone who doesn’t deliver what you want when you want it?

  • Haven’t heard much about who’s expected to “buy” what comes out of the LNG, or what will protect Alaska’s residents and Permanent Fund from construction-cost overruns, bribes, kickbacks, bid-rigging, currency devaluations, corrupt escalation contracts, all the things that caused Trans Alaska Pipeline construction to cost way more than it should have…
    Wonder if our benighted state government officials are still expecting to “sell” LNG product to Alaska’s new BFF, Communist China who, crucially, seems to be at war with the rest of America…
    Maybe it’s all about keeping Alaska’s labor unions alive… Unless this boondoggle’s rammed down Alaska’s throat, there’s probably not much left in Alaska to sustain Labor and Government in the manner to which they seem to have become entitled…

    • Morrigan … Well Said.
