Alaska Gasline Development Corporation (AGDC) Interim President Joe Dubler issued the following comment after publication of the Federal Energy Regulatory Commission (FERC) draft Environmental Impact Statement (EIS) for the proposed Alaska LNG project:
“Alaska LNG holds the potential for significant environmental, energy, economic, and employment benefits for Alaskans. Publication of the draft Environmental Impact Statement represents substantial progress toward obtaining the authorization required to build and operate this project.
“We will now begin to thoroughly examine this comprehensive document to understand the commission’s recommendations. The ongoing permitting process incorporates 150,000 pages of data and should give Alaskans confidence that the project’s merits and impacts are being rigorously scrutinized.”
The draft EIS may be viewed and downloaded from FERC’s website (https://www.ferc.gov/industries/gas/enviro/eis/2019/06-28-19-DEIS.asp).
