The Alaska LNG Project pipeline is being designed to carry natural gas from the North Slope to a proposed natural gas liquefaction facility in Nikiski, Alaska. The majority of the proposed pipeline will be buried, except where it crosses ecologically sensitive areas and will be routed above ground. Unlike oil, natural gas flows normally at below freezing temperatures and needs to be kept cool in the pipeline.
The current design basis is for an 806 mile, 42” diameter pipeline with up to eight compressor stations along the line. The pipeline has a capacity of 3.3 billion cubic feet of natural gas per day. The draft route continues to be amended based on input from communities along the line and input from regulatory agencies.
