Summary

Alaska Gasline Development Corporation (AGDC), Exxon Mobil Corporation (XOM), BP Plc (BP), ConocoPhillips (COP) and TransCanada Corp. (TRP) are jointly undertaking the construction of LNG development in Alaska, the US.

The project involves construction of various on-shore infrastructure supporting LNG production, processing and transport. The crude extracted from the gas field with an output capacity of 15 million to 18 million tonnes a year will be processed at the production facility will be transferred to gas treatment plant via pipelines followed by further processing at planned liquefaction facility and to storage and transport via terminal.

It includes the construction of a liquefaction plant with a production capacity of up to as 900 billion cubic feet of gas per year, three 5.8MTPA LNG trains, three 160,000m3 LNG storage tanks and one-two jetties.

It also includes the construction of a 93km, 0.762m diameter pipeline from the Point Thomson field to Prudhoe Bay, another 1,287km, 1.06m diameter gas pipeline with a capacity to export 3 to 3.5 billion cubic feet gas per day from Nikiski to Prudhoe Bay via Livengood which will facilitate building eight compressor stations of 30kHP each, a gas treatment plant, a liquefaction plant and, gas storage and export terminal.

The gas treatment plant at this North Slope facility will purify, chill and compress gas from Point Thomson, Prudhoe and possibly other fields to prepare it for shipment to market. The three train plant will spread across approximately 101ha of land and require 300,000t of steel for construction. This will include 18 CO2-removal modules, eight compression modules, three chilling modules, a power plant, utilities and other buildings.

The pipeline to Prince William Sound or Cook Inlet will be buried along most of the route, with trenching and pipe-laying work limited to winter when the frozen ground can support heavy equipment. The pipeline would be designed to move as much as 3.5bcf of gas a day and require up to 1.2 million tons of steel.

The project will also include two storage tanks built at the liquefaction terminal, each capable of holding about 3.5 billion cubic feet of gas in the form of LNG.

The project is one of the US government’s 50 priority infrastructure projects listed under the "Priority List: Emergency & National Security Projects" document.

URS Corporation and Furgo have been appointed to undertake conceptual design and study works.

On January 15, 2012, the state government and the development consortium released agreements that aligned their interests in principle and set the stage for the project's engineering, design and permitting.

In October 2012, the project cost is estimated as US$65,000 million. In December 2012, feasibility studies for the project commenced.

In October 2013, Nikiski area of Kenai Peninsula was selected as the location of the project.

On April 20, 2014, the project secured approvals from the Alaska Legislature with major North Slope oil and gas producers and pipeline company TransCanada toward a partnership to develop the proposed Alaska LNG development.

On July 21, 2014, Developers submitted an application to the U.S. Department of Energy for exporting liquefied natural gas through pipeline. Both the Energy Department and the Federal Energy Regulatory Commission have to approve LNG exports to more lucrative non-FTA areas like Asia and Europe.

On September 10, 2014, XOM Submits Formal Request to Federal Energy Regulatory Commission (FERC). The company sought to begin the pre-file process for the project. It also makes way for the activity related to the environmental assessment necessary for the siting, design and allowance of construction for the proposed project.

In November 2014, U.S. Department of Energy has given export approvals for the proposed project. Black & Veatch, Enalytica have been appointed as study consultants for the project.

On February 12, 2015, Developers submitted draft environmental and socioeconomic reports for the project to US Federal Energy Regulatory Commission.

On February 18, 2015, CH2M HILL Engineers was awarded Pre-FEED (Front End Engineering Design) contract for the LNG marine facilities.

Land Acquisition is on to provide space for the liquefaction plant and marine terminal in Nikiski.

As of November 2015, the project is in the early stages of assessing financial, technical feasibility and securing permits from various government agencies.

In December 2015, Alaska Gasline Development Corporation (AGDC) has approved the 2016 work program for the project.

On June 29, 2016, Senate Resources Committee project update hearing meeting was held.

In January 2017, preliminary works of US$500 million development were concluded.

On April 17, 2017, AGDC submitted planning applications to FERC. AGDC is in the process of preparing draft EIS for the project and slated for completion by second quarter of 2018. the final investment decision is expected to be completed by first quarter of 2019.

Planning activities are underway.
