The FERC Process

An Overview

Even though the Alaska LNG Project may seem like a uniquely Alaskan effort, it requires several federal authorizations and a National Environmental Policy Act (NEPA) review. This review has to be conducted before permitting and development can move forward. The Federal Energy Regulatory Commission (FERC) is the lead federal agency responsible for conducting the environmental review of the project, and it has a rigorous process for collecting information and facilitating effective conversations with the project stakeholders.

The FERC pre-filing process is an opportunity for the project and stakeholders to engage in useful dialogue before a project files a formal application and to gather important information that defines the subsequent project Environmental Impact Statement (EIS).

The application process starts when the project files a formal application and the FERC prepares the EIS for the project. The FERC will use the EIS to consider the environmental impacts that could result if it authorizes the project, and suitability of potential mitigation.

Project Map

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.
