Alaska LNG (AKLNG)

In January 2012 Governor Sean Parnell called upon the North Slope Producers – BP, ConocoPhillips, and ExxonMobil – to align under the Alaska Gasline Inducement Act (AGIA) and TransCanada to explore a large-scale LNG project to tidewater. On March 30, 2012, the CEOs for these companies announced in a letter to the Governor that they were aligned on an approach “with the aim to commercialize North Slope natural gas resources within the AGIA framework.  SEE

In a letter dated October 1, 2012, the Alaska North Slope Producers provided the first details for the AKLNG concept selection phase of the project. The AKLNG integrated team identifies TransCanada – along with the three North Slope Producers – as part of the team’s management committee. APP is identified as the lead on pipelines for this project. SEE Alaska North Slope Producers Letter to the Governor of October 1, 2012.
