Application renewed for Alaska natural gas pipeline


By the OGJ Online Staff


HOUSTON, Mar. 14
�Alaskan Northwest Natural Gas Transportation Co. is renewing its application for right-of-way across 235 miles of Alaska state lands for a proposed natural gas pipeline route that would parallel the Alaska Highway.

Its latest application has been filed with the State Pipeline Coordinator in Anchorage, officials said Wednesday.

The company filed its original application for right-of-way in 1981 and has periodically renewed it to keep it active since then. Alaskan Northwest also has a federal right-of-way grant for more than 400 miles in Alaska.

�Alaskan Northwest has maintained its permits and rights-of-way over the years in order to capture the timing advantage and gain momentum once the price of gas makes an Alaska natural gas pipeline viable,� said John Ellwood, project manager.

Alaskan Northwest is a partnership formed by subsidiaries of Foothills Pipe Lines Ltd. and TransCanada PipeLines Ltd. It is designated under the Alaska Natural Gas Transportation Act to own and operate the proposed Alaska Highway Pipeline Project to move gas from the North Slope to markets in the Lower 48 States.

Foothills Pipe Lines was also designated by the Canadian government to own and operate the Canadian segment of the proposed natural gas pipeline.

The total potential gas resource of Alaska�s North Slope has been estimated at 100 tcf. Alaska could supply 3-4 bcfd of gas to the Lower 48 States with a pipeline in place, officials have said.
