Reports on Alaska's major gas project open to public comment

    Members of the public now have access to new reports detailing the work involved in creating Alaska's proposed liquefied natural gas project.

    KENAI, Alaska (AP) — Members of the public now have access to new reports detailing the work involved in creating Alaska's proposed liquefied natural gas project.

    The Peninsula Clarion reports that project managers submitted the resource reports to the Federal Energy Regulatory Commission last month. The reports are a second draft and come after three years of geotechnical and geophysical work as well as public meetings and feedback.

    They provide a wide range of information from a general overview of the project to where potential workers' children would attend school.

    Federal regulators have to review the documents and the public has to weigh in before the reports can be submitted in a final application.

    The documents say the state's project with partners BP, ConocoPhillips and Exxon Mobil Corp will have direct socioeconomic effects throughout Alaska.
