Lease Administration
  • Permitting
  • The ROW Section issues ROW lease authorizations for all AS 38.35 pipelines. For TAPS,the ROW section also issues land use permits, temporary water use permits, and ROWs for roads and boat launches necessary for operations and maintenance activities and special projects. Because each project can involve unique lease or permit requirements, the permit review process can involve a significant amount of coordination.
