The sleepy AK LNG project is generating a flurry of FERC filings. None are monumentally interesting or overly informative, but if you are following the project take a look and enjoy the filings:
1) Summary of the 10/29/14 telephone conversation re Alaska Gasline Development Corporation's Alaska LNG Project under PF14-21
2) Summary of the 10/28/14 Telephone conversation re Alaska Department of Natural Resources' Alaska LNG Project under PF14-21
3) Summary of the 2014-January-2015 conference call between FERC Staff, Alaska LNG Project Staff et al re the Bi-Weekly Pre-filing Process conference call for the Alaska LNG Project under PF15-21.

5) Summary of the 10/30/14 Telephone conversation re Alaska Gasline Development Corporation's Alaska LNG Project under PF14-21.
This sounds chilling (i.e. what fresh regulatory horrors are brewing?):
- In addition, the project will require an Alaska National Interest Lands Conservation Act section 810 evaluation. (BLM and the DOI)
- There is a new arctic policy, which this project will be the test case for its development. This policy is an integrated approach to approving development or projects in the arctic region. This group is wondering how to integrate its process into the National Environmental Policy Act process. (DOI)
