The Bureau of Land Management published a Notice of Intent on November 21, 2018, to begin the development of a new Integrated Activity Plan (IAP) and associated Environmental Impact Statement (EIS) for the National Petroleum Reserve in Alaska (NPR-A). The public comment period will end on February 15, 2019. The BLM is seeking comments from interested members of the public on the following topics:

    • Which areas of the NPR-A should be available for leasing? Which areas should not be available for leasing?
    • Should any of the special area boundaries identified in the 2013 IAP/EIS Record of Decision (ROD) be adjusted, and if so, how?
    • Should any of the best management practices or lease stipulations identified in the 2013 IAP/EIS ROD be revised, and if so, how? Should any be eliminated?
    • Are there any new lease stipulations or best management practices that should be considered?
    • What resources should be given particular attention in the new IAP/EIS analysis?

The current management plan for the NPR-A can be viewed in the 2013 NPR-A IAP/EIS ROD.
