Community members will have a chance to offer public comments on the draft environmental impact statement for the Alaska Liquid Natural Gas Project — a planned 806-mile pipeline that would carry natural gas from the North Slope to a liquefaction plant and terminal in Nikiski.
The meeting, which was announced in a July 26 Federal Regulatory Commission public notice, is at 5 p.m. tonight at the Nikiski Recreation Center.
Staff of the Federal Energy Regulatory Commission will be onsite to listen to comments regarding the draft EIS statement, which was released by FERC June 26.
The primary goal of the meeting is to have community members identify specific environmental issues and concerns they have with the draft EIS, which will be recorded and made part of the public record.
For those who cannot attend the meeting, FERC encourages residents to file comments electronically. Comments can be filed using the eComment feature on www.ferc.gov. People may also submit comments through the mail by referencing the project number docket, (CP17-178-000) and addressing the submission to Kimberly D. Bose, Secretary, Federal Energy Regulatory Commission, 888 First Street NE, Room 1A, Washington DC, 20426. Public comment period closes Oct. 3.
