Hilcorp Alaska, LLC; POC: Deborah Fleming.

*Purpose: The applicant’s stated purpose is to expand L-Pad to provide space for the installation of three Titan 130 Turbines skids, piping for diesel fuel and fuel gas supply to the Titans, fuel gas metering skid, two 1130 barrel Diesel Tank containment for emergency start-ups, electrical equipment rooms and switchgear rooms, and five additional development wells. The turbines are needed to provide power for adding new production wells in the western part of Milne Point Unit.

 *Location: The project site is located in Milne Point Unit, within Sections 7 & 8, T. 13 N.,R. 10 E., Umiat Meridian; USGS Quad Map Beechey Point B-5; Latitude 70.4967º N., Longitude 149.6353º W.; approximately 35 miles northwest of Prudhoe Bay, Alaska.

*Proposed Work: The applicant proposes to discharge 27,905 cubic yards (cy) of gravel into approximately 2.3 acres of wetlands for the expansion of L-Pad in the Milne Point Unit. The expansion would provide a foundation for adding three Titan 130 turbine skids, a fuel gas metering skid, two 47,460-gallon diesel tanks and containment basins, piping for diesel and fuel gas supply to the turbines, three electrical equipment rooms, a switchgear room, and up to five additional development wells. The electrical skid near the entrance to L-Pad would also be expanded. The skid expansion and new fuel pipelines would require the installation of up to eleven 12-inch diameter vertical support members (VSMs) in the tundra. Electrical and communication cables connected to the electrical skid would be relocated and buried in a 65-foot long trench between the skid and the proposed pad expansion supporting the Titan turbines.
