We received the following update on the Kodiak Airport EIS project from Leslie Grey a FAA Environmental Protection Specialist.
Mitigation Draft Stakeholder Message No. 1 of 2
We have been developing a mitigation plan for the unavoidable adverse impacts that could result from the project. The Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) and Alaska Department of Transportation & Public Facilities (ADOT&PF) have been working with agencies, tribes and other interested parties on how to best mitigate these impacts from the proposed projects. Mitigation is a fairly complex and lengthy topic. Instead of trying to cover all of the details in a single message, I think breaking the topic up into two parts works best. This letter will focus on providing background on mitigation and how it applies to this project. In my next letter, I will continue with specific information on how we developed the specific mitigation plan for this project.
We received the following information on floating liquified natural gas projects, please take a moment to look at the report found on the link below.
FLNG drops anchor as industry moves production offshore
Billions of dollars are being committed to what could be the liquefied natural gas industry’s next big trend: Floating LNG projects, or FLNG.
Three projects are under way, and the whole LNG world is watching to see how they work out. First production could come in 2014 or 2015.
Can producing LNG aboard giant floating factories really cut costs and development time? Can the production vessels really withstand the worst fury an ocean can churn up? Can they really bring to market gas from hundreds of remote offshore fields that would be too expensive to develop otherwise?
Major oil and gas producers, multinational engineering firms and the world’s biggest shipyards all are trying to position themselves for breakout growth of FLNG.
The Office of the Federal Coordinator for Alaska natural gas pipeline projects prepared the following report on the development of floating LNG projects: http://www.arcticgas.gov/flng-drops-anchor-industry-moves-production-offshore
We found the newsletter below to be quite interesting and wanted to share it with you as it highlights important projects and other points of interest that pertain to our district.
