MWH Global Selected for North Slope LNG Plant
Interior Energy Project to Supply Liquefied Natural Gas to Fairbanks, Alaska
Broomfield, Colo., January 20, 2014 – Colorado-based strategic consulting, engineering and construction firm MWH Global announced today the Alaska Industrial Development and Export Authority (AIDEA) Board has selected MWH as its private sector partner for the Interior Energy Project, a state-backed program to truck liquefied natural gas (LNG) to Fairbanks, Alaska by late 2015. The board unanimously approved the proposal.
“MWH has been serving the people of Alaska for more than 35 years,” said Alan Krause, chairman and CEO of MWH Global and a born and raised Alaskan. “We are pleased to continue that relationship with this groundbreaking selection by AIDEA to bring private financing to the Interior Energy Project. We look forward to being part of the team that lowers the cost of energy for the people and businesses in Fairbanks and the surrounding area.”
The Interior Energy Project was introduced in 2013 by Gov. Sean Parnell’s Senate Bill 23. The bill allows the state to move forward to develop a private-public partnership to deliver liquefied natural gas through a combination of cash grants, low-interest loans and bonds.
