    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. * Please contact Jason Brewer at (907) 753-2823, toll free from within Alaska at (800) 478-2712, by fax at (907) 753-5567, or by email at Jason.D.Brewer@usace.army.mil if further information is desired concerning this notice.

    Chris Wrobel, ConocoPhillips Alaska, Inc., states that the purpose is to improve existing roads within the Kuparuk River Unit (KRU) by bringing them up to current engineering standards and providing safe travel for all types of equipment. *Location: The project site is located within Section 24 T. 11 N., R. 8 E.; Sections 1, 11, 12, 14, 15, 16, 19, 20, 21, 29, & 32, T. 11 N., R. 9 E.; Sections 5, 6, 8, & 9, T. 11 N., R. 10 E.; Sections 2, 3, 10, 11, 15, 22, 23, 25, 26, & 36, T. 12 N., R. 9 E.; Sections 25 & 36, T. 13 N., R. 8 E.; Sections 28 & 33, T. 13 N., R. 9 E., Umiat Meridian; USGS Quad Map Beechey Point B-5; and Sections 23, 24, 26, & 27, T. 11 N., R. 8 E., Umiat Meridian; USGS Quad Map Harrison Bay B-1; with a centroid Latitude 70.3371º N., Longitude -149.7316º W.; half way between Prudhoe Bay and Nuiqsut, Alaska. *Proposed Work: The placement of 293,000 cubic yards (cy) of gravel would be placed into 48 acres of Waters of the U.S., including wetlands (47.63 acres of Palustrine emergent (PEM) wetlands, 0.27 acre of Palustrine unconsolidated bottoms (PUB), and 0.1 Riverine lower perennial unconsolidated (R2U)) for the widening of 26 miles of KRU roads and drill site access roads. The roads would be 35 feet wide at the top of the road with the width varying at the toe-to-toe between 61 to 81 feet dependent upon the topography of the landscape. The project would be phased over five years (starting in 2018 with the completion expected in 2022) with approximately six miles of road being completed each year. The determining factor in which roads are completed first would depend on future drilling objectives. The complete project would place a total of 1,300,000 cy of gravel for road improvements, most of which would be placed on top of existing fill. No new roads would be constructed under the proposed work. Please contact Mary Romero at (907) 753-2773, toll free from within Alaska at (800) 478-2712, by fax at (907) 753-5567, or by email at mary.r.romero@usace.army.mil if further information is desired concerning this notice.
