Alaska LNG project selects terminal location

ExxonMobil Corp., BP PLC, ConocoPhillips, and TransCanada Corp. have selected a site in the Nikiski area on the Kenai Peninsula as the lead site for the companies’ proposed South Central Alaska LNG project’s LNG plant and terminal (OGJ Online, June 10, 2013), reported ExxonMobil.

It said more than 20 locations were evaluated based on environment, socioeconomics, cost, and “other project and technical issues.”

Senior project manager Steve Butt said the site results in a pipeline route that provides access to North Slope natural gas by the major population centers in Fairbanks, Mat-Su Valley, Anchorage, and the Kenai Peninsula.

Several engineering, technical, regulatory, fiscal, commercial, and permitting issues remain on the $45-65+ billion project. Pipeline routing definition also continues, said the announcement, based on summer field work, which will be extended south of Livengood.

The companies continue to refine the concept that includes a gas-treatment plant on the North Slope, an 800-mile, 42-in. pipeline with up to eight compressor stations and at least five off-take points for in-state gas delivery, and a liquefaction plant and terminal.
