Federal Regulators Reschedule Meetings on Alaska Pipeline Project

Posted by Jack Barry on Thu, Jan 26, 2012

Federal regulators have rescheduled a meeting in Anchorage on TransCanada Corp.'s proposed Alaska natural gas pipeline project.

The Federal Energy Regulatory Commission, or FERC, had canceled a Jan. 18 scoping meeting while it waited for TransCanada to file draft environmental reports. TransCanada has since filed those.

The Anchorage meeting is reset to Feb. 13.

The focus is on TransCanada's proposed project from the North Slope into Canada. FERC has announced plans to do an environmental review of the Alaska portion. Through its meetings, it is trying to determine what potential environmental impacts to consider in the report.

The first scoping meeting is scheduled for Monday in Fairbanks. Additional meetings are planned in Delta Junction, Tok, Barrow, Nuiqsut and Kaktovik.
