Yesterday, the Denali Citizens Council filed an administrative appeal of the Division of Oil and Gas approval of the Healy Creek Plan of Operations. Although we do not oppose gas exploration east of the Nenana River, we are working to ensure that the process of approval is clear, accurate, comprehensive and defensible.
When the State of Alaska approved the Healy Creek Gas Exploration project’s plan of operations, it accepted the argument that the project did not have to conduct a monitoring plan. Our appeal rests on the criteria for exempting the project from a monitoring plan.
