The TAPS Renewal EIS assesses the environmental impacts associated with the TAPS owners' proposal to renew the pipeline right-of-way for 30 years.

The Bureau of Land Management (BLM), Alaska State Office, has determined that the Trans-Alaska Pipeline System (TAPS) owners' application for a renewal of the right-of-way for TAPS is a major federal action that requires the preparation of an environmental impact statement (EIS).

The TAPS Renewal EIS is a very important document in the TAPS right-of-way renewal process. The EIS assesses the environmental impacts associated with renewal of the existing Grant of the right-of-way and the impacts associated with other alternatives to renewing the existing grant. The EIS has been prepared by BLM, with assistance from Argonne National Laboratory.

The TAPS Renewal Final EIS (FEIS) is available online for browsing and downloading, in the Documents section of this web site. If you'd like to learn more about the content of FEIS, start with the FEIS Guide, which provides brief descriptions of the major sections of the FEIS. The FEIS Summary Presentation provides a brief summary of the contents and major findings of the FEIS.
