Energy Program

Energy Program Manager: Jeff Bruno,, 907-269-7476

The objective of this program is to efficiently advance responsible project construction, operations, and expansion to complement the State’s policy goals of promoting energy (including oil and gas) abundance, and continuing to foster the responsible natural resource development that drives the State’s economy.

OPMP works with applicants and regulators to develop timelines that align, to the greatest extent possible, statutory, regulatory, and other permit requirements with project needs and goals. Progress is monitored, potential challenges and opportunities are identified, and support is continuously provided.

Prudhoe Bay

OPMP-coordinated projects include:

  • Willow, Pikka, Arctic Strategic Transportation and Resources (ASTAR), Triangle Community Road, Arctic Test Road, and Orphan Well Remediation Efforts.

This program also involves OPMP facilitation of the State’s response to proposed Federal actions. OPMP coordinates multi-agency State review, represents the State as Cooperating Agency (engaging technical experts), and submits consolidated State comments:

  • During the Federal National Environmental Policy Act (NEPA) process on projects in its Energy Program.
  • On proposed Federal rules, plans, and policies affecting energy (including oil and gas and other energy, including Cook Inlet, North Slope, wind, solar, geothermal, tidal, hydroelectric, Carbon Capture Utilization and Storage (CCUS), electric vehicle (EV), nuclear, and micronuclear exploration, development, production, and transportation), and other projects and Alaskan interests.

Please contact Jeff at any time with questions about how OPMP can help your project.
