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 for the National Petroleum Reserve in Alaska (NPR-A). The new IAP/EIS will include consideration of a range of leasing alternatives that open new areas to leasing, examination of current special area boundaries, and consideration of new or revised lease stipulations and best management practices. The new plan will incorporate the most current information and lay out management goals and objectives that are environmentally responsible, respect traditional uses of the land and maintain access to subsistence resources.  

The publication of the NOI began a 45-day public scoping period, which will be extended due to Anchorage's earthquake and technical difficulties with the e-Planning system. Please view the Meetings tab on the left side of the screen for public meeting times and locations.
