Alaska gas pipeline benchmark set by Governor Parnell

Parnell on pipeline

In his recent State of the State address, Alaska Gov. Sean Parnell said he wants energy companies to finalize a plan this year for a liquefied natural gas project pipeline that could deliver gas overseas, The Associated Press reported.

Parnell said the companies should come up with a concept by February 15, including the project's size and scope of a liquefaction plant and points where gas can be diverted in the state, according to the article.

“Let me be clear: That means describing and detailing the project and pipeline specifications,” Parnell said, Alaska Public Radio reported. “More specifically, it means telling us the size of the pipe and the daily volume of gas. It means telling us the location of the gas treatment plant, and detailing the number of compressor stations to move the gas along.”

An agreement should be finalized by spring, Parnell said, and the project should move into a preliminary engineering and financing stage. By summer, field work should begin.

The pipeline could cost more than $65 million, the AP reported.
