Alyeska Pipeline Service Company: Permitting and Electric Power Agreements
We are counsel to Alyeska Pipeline Service Company on air, water, and waste issues. We handle permit appeals, regulatory interpretation, agency negotiations, and support for negotiations; assist with permitting of new and modified facilities; negotiate electric power agreements; and provide antitrust counseling.
Alyeska operates the Trans Alaska Pipeline System, including the Valdez Marine Terminal. At peak production, Alyeska transported more than 2 million barrels of oil per day. Current throughput averages just under 700,000 barrels per day.
We represented Alyeska in appealing an air operating permit issued for the Valdez Marine Terminal. The State of Alaska had held Alyeska accountable for emissions of tankers calling at Valdez. We successfully negotiated changes to the permit requirements, reducing the burden on Alyeska.
