Alaska LNG delays application date by three months minimum
Alaska LNG project’s participants informed the final application is expected to be delayed by at least three months from the initial date set for September 2016.
According to a recent report filed with the United States Federal Energy Regulatory Commission, the delay is due “to ongoing pre-Front End Engineering and Design (pre-FEED) and engineering optimization work.”
The project’s participants, the Alaska Gasline Development Corporation and affiliates of BP, ConocoPhillips, and ExxonMobil are proposing to build a natural gas liquefaction plant in the Nikiski area on the Kenai Peninsula, an 800-mile gas pipeline from southcentral Alaska to the North Slope, a gas treatment plant and transmission lines connecting the project to gas producing fields.
The project which is expected to cost between US$46-$65 billion is planned to produce and export up to 20 million metric tons of LNG per year.
