Incidental Take Authorization: Hilcorp Alaska Construction and Operation of the Liberty Drilling and Production Island in Foggy Island Bay, Beaufort Sea, Alaska
NOAA Fisheries has received a request from Hilcorp Alaska for authorization to take marine mammals incidental to construction and operation of the Liberty Drilling and Production Island, over the course of five years. Pursuant to the Marine Mammal Protection Act (MMPA), NOAA Fisheries is proposing regulations to govern that take. We had two comment periods to provide the public with additional time to submit information and to comment on this proposed rule.
