Between November 2011 and January 2012 Alaska Governor Sean Parnell called upon ExxonMobil, BP and ConocoPhillips (the “Alaska North Slope Producers” or “ANS Producers”) to align with the Alaska Pipeline Project (APP) and identify a concept for a large-diameter liquefied natural gas (LNG) export project from Alaska’s North Slope to tidewater in Southcentral Alaska. A framework for the project transition was included in Governor Sean Parnell’s January 19, 2012 State of the State address. Within the speech Governor Parnell set forth a roadmap for a natural gas project. This roadmap established benchmarks including: producer alignment with the APP on an LNG export project, resolution of the Point Thomson litigation, and exploring opportunities to consolidate efforts between two, state-supported natural gas pipeline projects. Alignment between the producers and APP necessitated a project plan amendment (PPA). The following links address the benchmarks identified in Governor Parnell’s speech:
