The GMT2 development would be connected by road and pipeline to the approved Greater Mooses Tooth One (GMT1) development. The Supplemental EIS is being prepared for the purpose of supplementing the Alpine Satellite Development Plan (ASDP) Final EIS, dated September 2004, regarding the establishment of satellite oil production pads and associated infrastructure within the Alpine field. DATES: Comments on relevant issues that will influence the scope of the supplemental EIS for the proposed GMT2 Development project may be submitted in writing until August 29, 2016. The BLM will provide opportunities for public participation upon publication of the Draft asabaliauskas on DSK3SPTVN1PROD with NOTICES SUMMARY: VerDate Sep<11>2014 18:42 Jul 28, 2016 Jkt 238001 Supplemental EIS, including public meetings and a public comment period.

ADDRESSES: You may submit comments until August 29, 2016 on issues related to the proposed GMT2 Development Project by any of the following methods: • Email: BLM_AK_GMT2_ Comments@blm.gov. • Fax: 907–271–5479. • Mail: GMT2 Scoping Comments, Bureau of Land Management, 222 West 7th Ave., Stop #13, Anchorage, AK 99513.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: On August 24, 2015, ConocoPhillips Alaska, Inc. (CPAI) submitted an Application for Permit to Drill (APD) an oil well and construct associated ancillary facilities to support up to 48 wells, including a production pad, pipeline, and road to facilitate development of petroleum resources within the Greater Mooses Tooth (GMT) Unit. The well site is named GMT2. The proposed project is located on Alaska’s North Slope within PO 00000 Frm 00087 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 the NPR–A, which encompasses approximately 22.8 million acres of public land. The project would facilitate production of oil from Federal and Alaska Native corporation lands within the NPR–A. The GMT2 project proposes a drill site on land currently managed by the BLM within the GMT Unit. This land is selected for conveyance by the Kuukpik Corporation, an Alaska Native corporation organized under the Alaska Native Claims Settlement Act of 1971 (ANCSA). The GMT2 site is approximately 15 miles west of the community of Nuiqsut. The associated pipeline and access road would traverse both Kuukpik Corporation lands and Federal lands within NPR–A for approximately 8.1 miles in a northeasterly direction to the Greater Mooses Tooth One (GMT1) development project, which was approved in February 2015 after its Final Supplemental EIS was completed in October 2014. At GMT1, the pipeline would connect to the approved GMT1 pipeline. From GMT1, produced oil, gas, and water would be carried via this pipeline across Kuukpik Corporation lands and Federal lands within the NPR–A, and across Alaska Native corporation lands and State of Alaska lands outside the NPR–A, to the Alpine Central Processing Facility (CD–1). Sales-quality crude would then be transported from CD–1 via pipeline to the Trans-Alaska Pipeline System. CPAI proposes placement of 78 acres of fill material to construct the GMT2 drill pad, an approximately 8.1-milelong gravel access road, and an 8.6-milelong pipeline, which includes electrical and communication cables, from the GMT1 pad. Gravel required for construction of the drill site and road would be obtained from the Arctic Slope Regional Corporation (ASRC) mine site, an existing commercial gravel source located on the east side of the Colville River outside the boundary of the NPR–A, approximately 15 miles east of the proposed site. The proposed GMT2 pad would be approximately 14 acres in size, would eventually contain up to 48 individual wells, and would be operated and maintained by staff from CD–1, who would travel to the site via the gravel road. The purpose of the Supplemental EIS is to evaluate new circumstances and information that have arisen since the ASDP Final EIS was issued in September 2004, as well as to address any changes in CPAI’s proposed development plan for GMT2. A version of the GMT2 project was initially approved in the Record of Decision (ROD) under the 2004 ASDP Final EIS as site CD–7, and was included as E:\FR\FM\29JYN1.SGM 29JYN1
