LNG Project Proceeding, Details Still Unclear

The companies behind the Alaska Pipeline Project made a presentation to the Nikiski Community Council this week, sharing their progress to date.


Speaker of the State House Mike Chenault, said they’re still dealing with a myriad of details, and although residents are curious about where the facility might be located and what docks it might use, Chenault said that’s still very much up in the air…


Speaker Chenault(R-Nikiski): “At this time, I think it’s just too early to say. Your natural instinct would be the Conoco dock, simply because it’s set up to load LNG, but the facility we’re talking about is somewhere in the neighborhood of ten times larger than the existing facility at Conoco now.”


However, with the possibility of the $45-$65 billion project coming to Nikiski, Chenault said it’s easy to be optimistic…


Speaker Chenault(R-Nikiski): “They’re actively working forward, trying to get to an open season, to see if we can’t put together an economically viable project, that one would bring gas to Alaskans along the railbelt with future hopes of all other Alaskan communities and bring more industry to Alaska that puts Alaskans to work and gives them a brighter future.”
