IMPACT OF NATURAL GAS PIPELINE ON MINERAL AND ENERGY DEVELOPMENT IN ALASKA

The impact of one primary and seven alternative natural gas pipeline routes and their alternatives on Alaska's mining industry is discussed. Four routes begin on Alaska's North Slope and lead to the 48 contiguous States via Canada, while three routes lead to tidewater where it would be liquified for transport to West Coast ports. This report summarizes the geology and the potential for mineral and energy development by 1:250,000 quadrangles through which the various pipeline routes pass. The potential impact along each route is then discussed giving the type of development likely and the number of people who could be attracted to the area.
