The meetings will be on the DRAFT SUPPLEMENTAL EIS on the GREATER MOOSES TOOTH UNIT PROPOSED DEVELOPMENT PROJECT, located on federal lands within the National Petroleum Reserve-Alaska (NPR-A). On July 22, 2013, ConocoPhillips submitted an application with BLM for issuance of a right-of-way grant and related authorizations to construct, operate, and maintain a drill site, access road, pipelines, and ancillary facilities to support development of petroleum resources at Greater Mooses Tooth Unit 1 located approximately 14 miles west of the ConocoPhillips-operated Alpineoil field. The proposed drill site location, and majority of the infield roads and pipeline route are on BLM-managed lands. The Greater Mooses Tooth Unit 1 project would facilitate the first production of oil from federal lands in the NPR-A. The BLM is considering a number of alternatives in the draft SEIS.
