AOGCC has recently released a Request for Interest (RFI) regarding the Alaska Class VI Program. Interested vendors can refer to the State of Alaska procurement website and RFI 240000002 at this link for more information.

UIC Class VI Primacy Grant from EPA

AOGCC has submitted a Letter of Intent back to EPA notifying them that we are interested in applying for the Class VI grant from EPA when that grant opportunity becomes available later in 2023. The grant would be to assist the AOGCC in pursuing primacy for the Class VI program. Information about Alaska’s Class VI wells and program is also available from the EPA Class VI website and from EPA Region 10.
