Exxonmobil Files Alaska LNG Project Draft Resource Reports with FERC
A series of draft environmental and socioeconomic reports for the Alaska LNG Project has been submitted to the Federal Energy Regulatory Commission (FERC), which is responsible for conducting the environmental review of the project. These reports, located at www.ferc.gov, also launch the pre-file public engagement process and provide preliminary baseline data about the project area and its potential impacts.
“These draft documents, known as Resource Reports, allow Alaska stakeholders to engage early in the regulatory process, so potential environmental and socioeconomic issues and opportunities can be proactively identified and managed,” said Steve Butt, project executive for the Alaska LNG Project. “They set the framework for the permitting process.”
The Alaska LNG Project is currently in the preliminary front end engineering and design (pre-FEED) phase of the project, which is expected to extend into 2016 with a gross spend of more than $500 million.
