Pipeline project working to secure Nikiski land

 

The Associated Press

The senior project manager for the Alaska liquefied natural gas project says Nikiski remains the leading contender for the terminal site where gas would be liquefied and shipped to Asia.

Steve Butt says project officials are working with landowners on "fair and durable agreements." He says progress is being made but if for some reason the needed land cannot be secured, there are alternatives.

He declined to be more specific, except to say the alternative sites would be on the tidewater.

The project has moved into a phase of preliminary engineering and design that could last up to 20 months.

Butt says the name "Alaska LNG" has been trademarked for the project, and there are plans to submit an application for an export license soon.
