Welcome to the home page of the Alaska Stand Alone Pipeline (ASAP) EIS
The State of Alaska is proposing to construct a 24-inch diameter, high pressure natural gas pipeline from Alaska’s North Slope to Cook Inlet. North Slope natural gas would be transported to in-state Alaska markets and be accessed from off-take points for the Fairbanks Area and other locations along the route.
The Alaska District, U.S. Army Corps of Engineers (Corps) has been designated the lead federal agency and the Bureau of Land Management (BLM), National Park Service (NPS), Environmental Protection Agency (EPA), United States Coast Guard (USCG), Pipeline and Hazardous Materials Safety Administration (PHMSA), and the Department of Natural Resources (ADNR) are participating as cooperating agencies in the Environmental Impact Statement (EIS) development process. To ensure compliance with the National Environmental Policy Act (NEPA) the EIS will be used as a basis for the Corps permit decision. The EIS will also fulfill the NEPA responsibilities of decisions and actions required by other federal agencies (such as right-of-way grants and other permits).
• PLEASE NOTE: The Final EIS is now available for review. The 30-day comment/review period ends on November 26, 2012.
