KRISTIN RYAN, Director, Division  of Spill Prevention & Response,                                                               
Department of  Environmental Conservation, advised  the committee                                                               
there  have been  two  recent  events in  Cook  Inlet related  to                                                               
infrastructure owned  by Hilcorp  Alaska, L.L.C. (Hilcorp).   The                                                               
first was a natural gas leak  from a pipeline located on the east                                                               
side of  Cook Inlet that  carries methane to four  platforms, two                                                               
of which  were producing  oil at  the time of  the rupture.   Ms.                                                               
Ryan explained  the pressure  in the pipeline  was reduced  to 65                                                               
pounds per  square inch (PSI)  so that critical  operations, such                                                               
as pump, can  operate.  Certain operations are  necessary to keep                                                               
the  seawater flowing  through  the other  pipeline  to land  and                                                               
prevent  the  pipeline from  freezing  up;  the wells  have  been                                                               
closed-in and  there is  no more  oil in  the line.   There  is a                                                               
continuing methane  release, at a much-reduced  rate, and Hilcorp                                                               
is monitoring  environmental impacts by testing  for salinity and                                                               
dissolved oxygen.  Because methane  displaces oxygen in the water                                                               
column,  the biggest  environmental concern  is whether  there is                                                               
sufficient oxygen in  the water column so that  fish can breathe.                                                               
She said  Hilcorp has  provided some  information related  to how                                                               
much  methane  is in  the  water,  but  her division  seeks  more                                                               
information to fully understand the situation.

REPRESENTATIVE RAUSCHER inquired as to who owns the pipe.                                                                       
                                                                                                                                
MS. RYAN answered Hilcorp.                                                                                                      
                                                                                                                                
CO-CHAIR  JOSEPHSON recalled  recent newspaper  reports that  the                                                               
Department  of  Environmental  Conservation (DEC)  needs  updated                                                               
regulations  to  prevent future  oil  pipeline  leaks, and  asked                                                               
whether this would apply to natural gas leaks as well.                                                                          
                                                                                                                                
MS.  RYAN said  DEC regulations  do  not pertain  to natural  gas                                                               
pipelines at  this time; the  department has  statutory authority                                                               
limited to the state's interest  in public safety concerns - such                                                               
as an explosion - but natural  gas above land dissipates into the

Hilcorp related to the affected natural gas and oil pipelines.                                                                  
                                                                                                                                
CO-CHAIR  JOSEPHSON  pointed  out  that DEC  has  concerns  about                                                               
methane displacing oxygen, PHMSA  has concerns, and concerns have                                                               
been  expressed  by the  governor.    He  asked whether  DEC  has                                                               
authority to regulate the discharge of natural gas underwater.                                                                  
                                                                                                                                
MS. RYAN advised  DEC has broad generic authority  that an entity                                                               
cannot  pollute and  said authority  is used  by DEC  to regulate

gas pipelines, as it does for oil pipelines.                                                                                    
                                                                                                                                
REPRESENTATIVE  BIRCH asked  Ms.  Ryan whether  Hilcorp has  been                                                               
cooperative regarding this matter.                                                                                              
                                                                                                                                
MS. RYAN  said Hilcorp has  been cooperative in working  with DEC                                                               
to minimize the release.   Using its generic authority, DEC asked                                                               
Hilcorp to monitor the release and  provide data, and it has done                                                               
so.                                                                                                                             
                                                                                                                                
REPRESENTATIVE  BIRCH  inquired  as   to  how  the  incident  was                                                               
discovered and reported.                                                                                                        
                                                                                                                                
2:04:51 PM                                                                                                                    
                                                                                                                                
MS.  RYAN said  Hilcorp self-reported  the release  to PHMSA  and                                                               
DEC.  In further response to Representative Birch, she explained                                                                
allowing  some  methane to  run  through  the pipeline  maintains                                                               
positive pressure  so seawater does not  infiltrate the pipeline.                                                               
The affected  pipeline was an  oil pipeline that  transported oil                                                               
from the platform  to the shore before it was  converted to a gas                                                               
pipeline and  reversed direction, thus  there is residual  oil in                                                               
the pipeline, and  if the pipeline is  infiltrated with seawater,

DEC's "best  guess" is  less than ten  gallons.   Hilcorp asserts                                                               
the release  was less than  three gallons.  The  amount recovered

CO-CHAIR  JOSEPHSON inquired  as to  how Hilcorp  arrived at  its                                                               
estimate of three gallons released.                                                                                             
                                                                                                                                
MS. RYAN said she did not  know.  In further response to Co-Chair                                                               
Josephson,  she concluded  the amount  will  remain "a  bit of  a

CO-CHAIR JOSEPHSON  then asked whether  the problem was  with the                                                               
structure of the pipeline between  the platforms or the impact of

MS. RYAN restated that the  cause is unknown; Hilcorp reported an                                                               
impact to the  platform.  As to whether Hilcorp  has made changes

in  further  response to  Co-Chair  Josephson,  she said  DEC  is

CO-CHAIR   JOSEPHSON  asked   how  the   undesignated  land   was

MS. FOSS  said some of the  land within the Palmer  Hay Flats SGR

CO-CHAIR JOSEPHSON clarified his question  in that in the Izembek

MS.  FOSS answered  [the land]  is  not part  of the  CHA and  is                                                               
designated  as  state water.    She  then directed  attention  to

established in  1972, and  said the  demarcations were  six miles

corrections in  HB 130  would redraw the  boundaries so  that the                                                               
previously isolated segments become part of a contiguous CHA.                                                                   
                                                                                                                                
REPRESENTATIVE BIRCH inquired  as to how the  affected areas were

asked what prompted moving the land into a CHA or SGR.                                                                          
                                                                                                                                
MS. FOSS  explained the bill  would not  add land to  CHAs except                                                               
for  the  change to  the  Dude  Creek  CHA.   The  department  is                                                               
shifting boundaries to align with the original statutory intent.

CO-CHAIR  JOSEPHSON returned  attention  to the  Port Moller  CHA                                                               
boundary  and asked  whether there  was a  problem affecting  the

MS.  FOSS  understood that  when  the  community was  erroneously                                                               
placed  within the  CHA in  1972,  there was  "much concern  over                                                               
this."   In  further  response to  Co-Chair  Josephson, she  said                                                               
there was  no change  in the  acreage of  the CHA  illustrated on                                                               
slide 5.  She further  described the boundary error affecting the                                                               
Pilot Point  CHA, and presented slide  7, which was a  map of the                                                               
Fox River  Flats CHA  located at  the head  of Kachemak  Bay, and                                                               
created in  1972.  Shown on  the map was the  mean highwater line                                                               
which  divides  the  uplands from  the  tidelines  and  submerged                                                               
water, which is important to the  boundary of the CHA.  Along the                                                               
north and  east boundaries, four  of the seven  meridian township                                                               
ranges  (MTRs)  have  tidelands  and  submerged  water  excluded;                                                               
however, the exclusions were not  applied consistently.  The bill                                                               
would remove  the existing exclusions  so that all  four sections                                                               
are treated  consistently; at this  time, the affected  areas are                                                               
the  intersection of  the  Bradley River  and  the tidelines  and                                                               
submerged lands.  She added that  Kachemak Bay was sinking and is                                                               
now  rebounding,  so  a  flexible definition  of  the  mean  high                                                               
tideline is necessary.                                                                                                          
                                                                                                                                
CO-CHAIR  JOSEPHSON asked  whether  ADFG has  heard any  concerns                                                               
from the community or residents of Homer.                                                                                       
                                                                                                                                
MS. FOSS  said ADFG  has not received  negative feedback  and has                                                               
received  letters  of  support  from  two  organizations  in  the                                                               
Kachemak Bay area.   Directing attention to slide 8,  which was a                                                               
map of  the Kachemak Bay CHA,  she said the Kachemak  Bay CHA was

standing access to the area would not be affected by the bill.                                                                  
                                                                                                                                
REPRESENTATIVE BIRCH asked for the significance of a CHA.

MS. FOSS  directed attention to  slide 9 which  was a map  of the
