BLM Office of Pipeline Monitoring Moves to Midtown Anchorage


The Bureau of Land Management (BLM) Office of Pipeline Monitoring is
moving from downtown Anchorage at 411 West Fourth Avenue to a new
midtown Anchorage location at 188 West Northern Lights Boulevard,
effective Monday, June 28.  The BLM is part of the multi-agency Joint
Pipeline Office established in 1990 to oversee the 800-mile Trans-Alaska
Pipeline System (TAPS).  The BLM works with the State of Alaska and
other federal agencies to monitor environmental protection, pipeline
system integrity, public and worker safety, and to ensure regulatory
compliance is achieved.  The BLM Office of Pipeline Monitoring also has
offices in Valdez and Fairbanks.

The Office of Pipeline Monitoring will be sharing space with the Office
of the Federal Coordinator for Alaska Natural Gas Transportation
Projects.  This new location will provide a central resource for
industry and the public.  The BLM Office of Pipeline Monitoring will
continue to provide oversight of TAPS and administer rights-of-way and
permits for land use, cultural survey activities, and material sales
related to pipeline use on federal lands."

The main telephone number for the BLM Office of Pipeline Monitoring
continues as 907-257-1300 through Friday, June 25.  On Monday, June 28,
the new mailing address and telephone contact will be:

BLM Office of Pipeline Monitoring
188 West Northern Lights Boulevard, Suite 500
Anchorage, AK 99503-3984

For questions about the move, contact Nolan Heath at 907-257-1371.

The BLM manages more land - 256 million surface acres - than any other
Federal agency. Most of this public land is located in 12 Western
States, including 75 million in Alaska. The Bureau, with a budget of
about $1 billion, also administers 700 million acres of sub-surface
mineral estate throughout the nation. The BLM's multiple-use mission is
to sustain the health and productivity of the public lands for the use
and enjoyment of present and future generations. The Bureau accomplishes
this by managing such activities as outdoor recreation, livestock
grazing, mineral development, and energy production, and by conserving
natural, historical, and cultural resources on the public lands.
