Alaska LNG project partners file export application with DOE

Partners in the Alaska LNG project marked another milestone after reporting the filing of an application with the US Department of Energy for the export of as much as 20 million tonnes/year of LNG for 30 years to countries that have existing free-trade agreements with the US, as well as to non-FTA countries.

Alaska LNG project participants include Alaska Gasline Development Corp. and units of TransCanada Corp., BP PLC, ConocoPhillips, and ExxonMobil Corp.

The project is now in pre-frontend engineering and design phase, which is expected to be completed in 2016 (OGJ Online, Apr. 21, 2014).

The proposed project facilities include a liquefaction plant and terminal in the Nikiski area on the Kenai Peninsula; an 800-mile, 42-in. pipeline; as many as eight compression stations; at least five take-off points for in-state gas delivery; and a gas treatment plant on the North Slope.
