Alaska LNG sees first production in 2025
Alaska LNG export project filed its second draft resource report with the U.S. Federal Energy Regulatory Commission noting the project is targeted to start up in 2025.
The multi-billion dollar project is being developed by the state-owned Alaska Gasline Development Corporation and energy giants BP, ConocoPhillips and ExxonMobil.
The facility to be constructed on the eastern shore of Cook Inlet on the Kenai Peninsula will be able to produce 20 mtpa of LNG from three liquefaction trains.
In its filing, the project participants added that the two storage tanks capable of storing 240,000 cbm of LNG each would be built at the site, unlike the three 160,000 cbm storage tanks planned initially.
Additionally, the project includes an 804-mile gas pipeline, a gas treatment plant, a 62-mile gas transmission line connecting the GTP to the Point Thomson unit and a 1-mile gas transmission line connecting the GTP to the Prudhoe Bay unit gas production facility.
The cost of the project is still estimated at $45 to $65 billion.
