Permits matrix instructions
The Office of the Federal Coordinator has collected a large amount of information about the major federal permits and approvals required for an Alaska natural gas pipeline project. This permits matrix will be updated with new approvals and authorizations as necessary.
To use the matrix, follow these simple steps:
1. Select the level of information:
- Detailed report: Provides for each permit the associated laws and regulations, timing and scheduling, public notices and public comment opportunities, related permits or coordination required, and application requirements.
- Summary report: Provides a brief overview of the permit and purpose.
2. Narrow your search by doing one or all of the following (hold down the CTRL key on your keyboard if making multiple selections within a category):
- Select specific permits (such as the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers Clean Water Act 404 permit).
- Retrieve all permits from specific agencies (such as the Bureau of Land Management).
- Find all the permits that may be required for a specific aspect of the project (such as the compressor stations).
- Look for permits associated with a specific law (such as permits requiring Endangered Species Act consultation).
3. View and print reports
- Generate PDF: Results will come up in an Adobe Acrobat PDF that you can print.
- Generate Report: Results will come up in a new browser window. If multiple permits matched your search, you can click on the green arrows in the upper right corner of the page to view other results.
