- Regulatory Process
A comprehensive regulatory process has been established for the Alaska LNG Project to ensure compliance with all applicable regulatory requirements.
The early regulatory process will largely focus on compliance with applicable laws, regulations, permits and approvals associated with land acquisition and environmental studies that will influence concept selection and preliminary front-end engineering and design (pre-FEED).
The Energy Policy Act of 2005 mandated that the FERC lead the siting analysis and approval of LNG terminals proposed in the United States. Therefore, FERC will serve as the lead federal agency in coordinating an Environmental Impact Statement (EIS) and issuing an order authorizing construction and operation of the facilities. The project will follow FERC’s pre-filing process prior to submitting the FERC application.
The Alaska LNG Project is anchored by the Prudhoe Bay and Point Thomson fields. These fields are expected to deliver on average about 3.5 billion cubic feet of gas per day with about 75% from the Prudhoe Bay field and 25% from the Point Thomson field.
