Alaska producers announce they will look into LNG export project

The three major North Slope producers and TransCanada are getting together to look at a proposed multibillion-dollar project that could result in exporting Alaska natural gas to Asia markets, they said in a letter Friday to Alaska Gov. Sean Parnell.

“As a result of the rapidly evolving global market, large-scale liquefied natural gas (LNG) exports from southcentral Alaska will be assessed as an alternative to gas line exports through Alberta,” the chief executives of ExxonMobil, Conoco Phillips and BP said in the letter.

“We are now working together on the gas commercialization project concept selection, which would include an associated timeline and assessment of major project components including in-state pipeline routes and capacities, global LNG trends, and LNG tidewater site selections, among others,” the letter said.

Alaska Natural Resources Commissioner Dan Sullivan said the state is in discussions with TransCanada about extending the state-imposed October 2012 deadline the pipeline company faces for filing with the Federal Energy Regulatory Commission for a certificate to build and operate a North Slope pipeline.
