... Alaska Oil and Gas Producers are conducting feasibility studies to determine the viability of transporting gas from the Prudhoe Bay area to markets in the southern United States, and to identify a preferred route. The Alaskan Producers have an aggressive schedule for completing their feasibility studies and making a decision as to the route they wish to pursue, if any. Once the decision on the route is made, there will be pressure on government to act in a timely and efficient manner in the processing and issuing of regulatory permits. The Council of Yukon First Nations, Department of Indian Affairs and Northern Development and Government of Yukon believe that it would be beneficial to hold a workshop to increase understanding among regulators and potential proponents of the regulatory requirements for a potential pipeline. The objectives of this workshop are to: educate regulators and proponents; generate a product that lays out how
regulatory authorizations will line up during the pre-construction and construction phases; and identify areas where regulatory processes could be made more efficient. ... The focus of the first day [of the workshop] is to educate regulators and proponents as to the major components and activities of a pipeline development and the regulatory requirements that may apply. Potential proponents will present information regarding the components and activities of a pipeline project. This will be followed by presentations by regulators on the regulatory permits that the proponents may be required to obtain. There will also be presentations on environmental assessment and development assessment. The second day will build upon the information provided in the first day through a case study exercise. It is anticipated that this case study exercise will generate a detailed road-map of regulatory authorizations that may be required for a pipeline project.
This road-map will delineate roles and responsibilities and identify linkages between authorizations and agencies. ...
