Arctic Slope Regional Corporation (ASRC) is issuing the following statement, following the release of the Final Environmental Impact Statement (EIS) for the Coastal Plain Oil and Gas Leasing Program. The Department of the Interior made the announcement earlier today.

“We are encouraged the Department heard our voices and incorporated our concerns into the final EIS. We look forward to a successful lease sale and strongly believe exploration and production can incorporate cultural and environmental protections while providing for the nation’s energy security. This economic driver will provide opportunities for our people and our region, as well as the rest of the state and nation for years to come.”
