  • POA-2010-496-M3, Shakmanof Cove_PN

    Expiration date: 9/8/2014

    Koniag’s stated purpose for the overall project is to provide reliable, year round access to an upland rock quarry. The applicant’s stated purpose for this proposed modification is to accommodate different types and configurations of barges because different entities each have their own type of barge that their company uses - not only do the sizes differ, but methods and abilities of loading/unloading. It is also quite common that a large company like Kiewit may have differing configurations of barge within its own fleet. PROPOSED WORK: Koniag Inc. is proposing to modify their existing permit to construct an additional barge landing dock (Phase 1 in the attached drawings), with the possibility in the future to expand this landing area to accommodate larger barges and/or barges of a different configuration (Phase 2). Please contact Heather Adams at (907) 753-2877, toll free from within Alaska at (800) 478-2712, by fax at (907) 753-5567, or by email at Heather.L.Adams@usace.army.mil if further information is desired concerning this notice.

  • POA-2009-651, Multiple Waterways

    Expiration date: 9/2/2014

    Alaska Gasline Development Corporation (AGDC) has stated, “The purpose of the Alaska In-State Gas Pipeline (ASAP) is codified in state law as one of the projects the AGDC is directed to develop. As stated in state law, AGDC "shall, for the benefit of the state, to the fullest extent possible, ... develop, finance, construct, and operate an in-state natural gas pipeline in a safe, prudent, economical, and efficient manner, for the purpose of making natural gas, including propane and other hydrocarbons associated with natural gas other than oil, available to Fairbanks, the Southcentral region of the state, and other communities in the state at the lowest rates possible." (Alaska Statute 31.25.005(4). The ASAP Project would be comprised of a natural gas conditioning facility (GCF) near Prudhoe Bay capable of producing 500 MMscfd of utility-grade natural gas; a 36-inch, 727-mile long, 1,480 psig subsurface natural gas pipeline connecting the GCF to the existing ENSTAR pipeline system in the Matanuska-Susitna Borough; and a 12-inch, 29-mile long, 1,480 psig, subsurface lateral line connecting the mainline to Fairbanks. The GCF would be constructed from modules delivered to the existing West Dock causeway in Prudhoe Bay. Facilitating transport and offload of these modular components will require modifications to dock head 3, winter dredging of a navigational channel to a 10-ft depth, nearshore dispersion of dredge material over bottomfast ice, channel screeding, and use of a temporary ballasted barge bridge during offload. The proposed pipeline would be buried except at possible fault crossings, elevated bridge stream crossings, pigging facilities, and block valve locations. Written comments should be sent to the following mailing address: U.S. Army Corps of Engineers, Alaska District, Regulatory Division, Attention: ASAP Project, Ms. Mary Romero, Post Office Box 6898, JBER, Alaska 99506-0898. Written comments can also be emailed to the following address: asapeiscomments@usace.army.mil. Comments may also be submitted on the SEIS website at www.asapeis.com.
