Chris Wrobel, SR., with ConocoPhillips Alaska, Inc., states the project purpose is to develop hydrocarbon resources from federal oil and gas leases in the Northeast Planning Area of the NPR-A.  The Project proposes a series of infrastructure components that will be constructed over an approximate 10-year period for the purpose of oil and gas development in the NPR-A.  Work being proposed includes:  placement of approximately 5,055,990 cubic yards (CY) of material into 459.2 acres, 450.8 acres of which are waters of the United States (WOUS), including wetlands, to construct up to five drillsites, a central processing facility, operations center, gravel access roads, pipelines, a constructed freshwater reservoir (CFWR) perimeter berm, an airstrip, and three boat ramps.  The applicant also proposes to convert 166.1 acres of WOUS from palustrine wetlands to lacustrine waters to develop a gravel mine with two gravel sites and create the CFWR.  Temporary discharges are proposed for screeding activities, the trenching of power and communication cables, and constructing multiseason ice pads.  Two pipeline crossings underneath the Colville River (same location), via horizontal directional drilling (HDD) will be undertaken.  All work would be performed in accordance with the enclosed plan Sheets 1-128, dated March 17, 2020. The project is located on the Arctic Coastal Plain of Alaska, primarily in the northeast section of the National Petroleum Reserve–Alaska (NPR-A).  The Project area generally includes the full extent of the Bear Tooth Unit (BTU) and portions of the Greater Mooses Tooth Unit (GMTU) east toward the Colville River.  The approximate project coordinates are Latitude 70.1303° N, Longitude 152.0429° W, Umiat Meridian.  Please contact Mr. Steve Moore by e-mail message at, direct telephone line at 907-753-5713, toll free from within Alaska at 800-478-2712, or by fax at 907-753-5567 if you have questions or need further information concerning this public notice.
