SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: The Bureau of Land Management has prepared the Ambler Road Draft EIS. The Draft EIS is in response to an application for an industrial road rightof-way (ROW) in north-central Alaska across federal public lands and other lands. The road would run from the existing Dalton Highway to the Ambler Mining District. The area involved lies south of the Brooks Range, north of the Yukon River, west of the Dalton Highway and east of the Purcell Mountains. The Alaska Industrial Development and Export Authority (AIDEA), a public corporation of the State of Alaska, is the applicant. The purpose of the public comment period is to inform the public of the availability of the Draft EIS and solicit comments from the public. Information received during the public comment period will be used to develop the Final EIS. Before including your address, phone number, email address, or other personal identifying information, be advised that your entire comment, including your identifying information, may be made publicly available at any time. While you may ask us in your comments to withhold your personal identifying information from public VerDate Sep<11>2014 16:43 Aug 29, 2019 Jkt 247001 review, we cannot guarantee that we will be able to do so. The BLM has worked with interested parties to develop a proposed action and alternatives consistent with the following criteria: • The proposed project submitted by the applicant, AIDEA; • Issues identified during public scoping, impacts and potential alternatives to be addressed; and • Subsistence resources and users, as well as potential actions to minimize adverse impacts to subsistence in accordance with section 810 of the Alaska National Interest Lands Conservation Act (ANILCA). Section 810 of ANILCA requires the BLM to evaluate the effects of the alternatives presented in the Draft EIS on subsistence activities, and to hold public hearings if it finds that any alternatives may significantly restrict subsistence users. The preliminary evaluation of subsistence impact indicates that certain alternatives analyzed in the Draft EIS and the associated cumulative impacts may significantly restrict subsistence uses. Therefore, the BLM will hold public hearings on subsistence resources and activities in conjunction with the public meeting on the Draft EIS in Alatna, Allakaket, Ambler, Anaktuvuk Pass, Bettles, Buckland, Coldfoot, Evansville, Hughes, Huslia, Kiana, Kobuk, Kotzebue, Noatak, Noorvik, Selawik, Shungnak, Stevens Village, Tanana, and Wiseman, Alaska.

The Bureau of Land Management prepared the Willow MDP Draft EIS in response to a letter submitted by ConocoPhillips on May 10, 2018. ConocoPhillips requested the development of the Willow prospect through a MDP EIS. The letter, available on the project website, includes a description of the foreseeable infrastructure and activity associated with the proposed Willow prospect development. Analyzing the entire proposed Willow development in a single MDP EIS allows the BLM to make determinations of National Environmental Policy Act (NEPA) adequacy when individual applications for permits to drill or rights-of-way are submitted. The MDP includes up to five drill sites, a central processing facility, an operations center pad, up to 38.2 miles of gravel roads, up to 924.2 miles of ice roads during construction and up to 215.6 total miles of resupply ice roads during operations, 1 to 2 airstrips, up to 337 miles of pipelines, and a gravel mine site. In addition, the Proponent would submit applications to the State of Alaska for a module transfer island on State submerged lands to support module delivery via sealift barges. Actions on both state and federal lands are considered in the Draft EIS. The Willow MDP would have a peak production of up to 130,000 barrels of oil per day over its 30-year life (producing approximately 590 million barrels of oil) and would help offset declines in production from the North SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: PO 00000 Frm 00093 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 9990 45801 Slope oil fields and contribute to the local, state, and national economies.

Therefore, the BLM will hold a public hearing on subsistence resources and activities in Nuiqsut, Alaska. Authority: 40 CFR 1506.6(b). Chad B. Padgett, State Director, Alaska.
