  • The Alaska Gasline Development Corporation announced that today it filed an application to obtain a Natural Gas Act Section 3 permit with FERC for its proposed Alaska LNG project, which is comprised of a gas treatment plant located at Prudhoe Bay, an 800-mile pipeline to Southcentral Alaska, and a natural gas liquefaction plant in Nikiski to produce LNG for export. The announcement anticipates that FERC will soon publish a schedule for the National Environmental Protection Act process in the Federal Register that outlines the time to develop a draft environmental impact statement (EIS) (likely 12 months) and a final EIS (another 6 months).
