Alaska LNG receives non-FTA export approval

LNG Industry,

The Alaska LNG Project has received conditional authorisation to export LNG to non-free trade agreement (FTA) countries from the US Department of Energy (DOE).

The application to export up to 20 million tpy of LNG from Alaska for a 30-year period was submitted to the DOE in July 2014. Authorisation to export to FTA nations was previously received in November 2014.

Commenting on the milestone, Steve Butt, Alaska LNG Senior Project Manager, said: “We are very pleased with the progress this represents. As with any large scale LNG project, access to as many markets as possible will improve the commercial viability of the proposed project.”

The proposed project facilities include a liquefaction facility in the Nikiski area on the Kenai Peninsula, an 800-mile large diameter pipeline, up to eight compression stations, at least five take-off points for in-state gas delivery, a gas treatment plant located on the North Slope and transmission lines to transport gas from Prudhoe Bay and Point Thomson to the gas treatment plant.
