After assessing 22 locations in Alaska, the Nikiski area on the Kenai Peninsula in East Cook Inlet was identified as the lead location for Alaska LNG’s LNG plant and marine terminal site. Nikiski has the following critical features needed to support the terminal:
To date, the Alaska LNG Project LLC has purchased over 580 acres of land in the Nikiski area and has just completed two successful field work programs in the area. In 2015, over 100 specialists spent several months studying a number of aspects of the proposed project area to better define the design and footprint.
This highly technical effort involved collecting information on soils, water, air, wildlife and communities near the proposed are of the Alaska LNG Project. For more information about the 2015 field work program in Nikiski read this update from the Alaska LNG Monitor.
The goal was to assess the proposed project area’s current environmental and socioeconomic state and to gather the scientific and engineering data needed to safely and economically transport, process and export the North Slope’s massive gas resources.
Liquefied natural gas is colorless, odorless, and non-toxic and non-combustible as a liquid. It evaporates quickly from both soil and water without leavening a hydrocarbon residue.
The production and transportation of liquefied natural gas has an excellent safety record around the world. To ensure safety is a first priority, the Alaska LNG Project will employ the most technologically advanced and safest LNG systems in existence.
In the Kenai Peninsula Borough, the Kenai LNG plant in Nikiski has been operating for almost 50 years without incident.
The Alaska LNG Project has a community information office in Kenai, Alaska.
For information on the proposed Kenai Spur Highway relocation feasibility study read this update from the Alaska LNG Monitor.
Over the last year, residents of the Kenai Peninsula Borough have shown tremendous interest in the Alaska LNG Project and have participated in numerous community meetings, discussions, and open houses. This document highlights answers to frequently asked questions about issues that matter to residents of the KPB.
The Alaska LNG Project is anchored by the Prudhoe Bay and Point Thomson fields. These fields are expected to deliver on average about 3.5 billion cubic feet of gas per day with about 75% from the Prudhoe Bay field and 25% from the Point Thomson field.
