BLM Alaska manages the surface and subsurface at the drill site and at the proposed infield road and pipeline route. ConocoPhillips may also develop subsurface resources owned by the Arctic Slope Regional Corporation, and may occupy surface lands owned by the Kuukpik Corporation. The proposed GMT2 site is approximately 25 miles southwest of the ConocoPhillips-operated Alpine Central Processing Facility (CD1) and will be operated and maintained by staff at the Alpine Central Processing Facility. The GMT2 Project was originally analyzed as the Colville Delta 7 (CD7) drill pad in the BLM’s September 2004 Alpine Satellite Development Plan Final EIS. The purpose of the Supplemental EIS is to evaluate any relevant new circumstances and information that have arisen since the Alpine Satellite Development Plan Final EIS, to update the alternatives in the 2004 EIS, and to address any changes to ConocoPhillips’ proposed development plan for GMT2. The GMT2 Final Supplemental EIS analyzes four alternatives, including two alternatives with an access road, an alternative without an access road, and a no-action alternative. The Supplemental EIS will result in a Record of Decision (ROD) that will approve, deny, or approve with modification, ConocoPhillips’ application, as well as incorporate any additional mitigation measures that may be appropriate. The Draft Supplemental EIS, published in March 2018, identified Alternative A, the Proponent’s Proposal, as the BLM’s preferred alternative. The Final Supplemental EIS also identifies Alternative A as BLM’s Preferred Alternative.

SUMMARY: The Bureau of Land Management (BLM), Arctic District Office, 
Fairbanks, Alaska, is issuing the Final Supplemental Environmental 
Impact Statement (EIS) for the Alpine Satellite Development Plan for 
the Greater Mooses Tooth 2 (GMT2) Development Project, National 
Petroleum Reserve in Alaska (NPR-A). The EIS supplements the September 
2004 Alpine Satellite Development Plan Final EIS that originally 
analyzed the GMT2 Project, regarding establishing satellite oil 
production pads and associated infrastructure within the Alpine field.

DATES: The BLM will issue a Record of Decision for the application for 
permit to drill no earlier than 30 days from the date of the Notice of 
Availability published by the Environmental Protection Agency.

question with the above individual. You will receive a reply during

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: The GMT2 Supplemental EIS analyzes an 
application from ConocoPhillips Alaska, Inc. (ConocoPhillips). The 
application is for a permit to drill and related authorizations to 
construct, operate, and maintain a drill site, access road, pipelines, 
and ancillary facilities on federally managed land to support 
development of petroleum resources at the GMT2 drill site. BLM Alaska 
manages the surface and subsurface at the drill site and at the 
proposed infield road and pipeline route. ConocoPhillips may also 
develop subsurface resources owned by the Arctic Slope Regional 
Corporation, and may occupy surface lands owned by the Kuukpik 
Corporation.
    The proposed GMT2 site is approximately 25 miles southwest of the 
ConocoPhillips-operated Alpine Central Processing Facility (CD1) and 
will be operated and maintained by staff at the Alpine Central 
Processing Facility.
    The GMT2 Project was originally analyzed as the Colville Delta 7 
(CD7) drill pad in the BLM's September 2004 Alpine Satellite 
Development Plan Final EIS. The purpose of the Supplemental EIS is to 
evaluate any relevant new circumstances and information that have 
arisen since the Alpine Satellite Development Plan Final EIS, to update 
the alternatives in the 2004 EIS, and to address any changes to 
ConocoPhillips' proposed development plan for GMT2. The GMT2 Final 
Supplemental EIS analyzes four alternatives, including two alternatives 
with an access road, an alternative without an access road, and a no-
action alternative.
    The Supplemental EIS will result in a Record of Decision (ROD) that 
will approve, deny, or approve with modification, ConocoPhillips' 
application, as well as incorporate any additional mitigation measures 
that may be appropriate. The Draft Supplemental EIS, published in March 
2018, identified Alternative A, the Proponent's Proposal, as the BLM's 
preferred alternative. The Final Supplemental EIS also identifies 
Alternative A as BLM's Preferred Alternative.
    The key issues in the GMT2 Final Supplemental EIS are the 
protection of surface resources; the minimization of social impacts; 
and the identification of appropriate mitigation measures for the 
construction, operation, and maintenance of a drill site and access 
road, pipelines, and ancillary facilities to support development of 
petroleum resources at the proposed GMT2 site.

    Authority: 40 CFR 1506.6(b).

Acting State Director, Alaska.
