PUBLIC INPUT SOUGHT ON DRAFT PIPELINE ROUTE
The Alaska LNG Project plans to schedule community meetings for late winter 2016 to solicit input on the route. At those meetings, the team will outline the proposed pipeline corridor and proposed off-right-of-way infrastructure and facilities including proposed temporary work camps, pipeline laydown yards and proposed access roads and railroad sidings.
It is anticipated that temporary pipeline laydown yards will be located about every 17 miles along the main pipeline route with temporary construction camps located about every 40 miles.
“We recognize that community members will have a strong interest in the proposed siting of these project facilities and we are very interested in the public’s early feedback,” said Jack Everts, Alaska LNG Project pipeline execution manager. “Our plan is to bring large maps to meetings so that people can highlight, mark up with their thoughts and share their own insightful local knowledge.”
It is likely that specific details related to these pipeline aspects will continue to change as early engineering work is advanced on the Alaska LNG Project and as public input is incorporated into the project’s draft plans.
Information on the winter 2016 community meetings will be posted on ak-lng.com. Advertisements will be sent out by email and will also be posted in local papers, on community billboards and in post office boxes in communities along the proposed pipeline route.
