Alaska has successfully been exporting LNG for almost 50 years. This project will tap approximately 35 trillion cubic feet of proven gas resources, plus 200 trillion cubic feet of potential gas resources on the North Slope. That’s enough gas to support the integrated natural gas project for generations, while providing real economic benefits to the State and all Alaskans.
The major North Slope gas sources, Prudhoe Bay and Point Thomson, already have infrastructure, large-scale production facilities, and a qualified work force.
Strategically located in the North Pacific, Alaska’s proximity to the key growth markets for LNG offers significant shipping advantages.
Alaska’s colder climate allows liquefaction plants to produce LNG with up to 15 percent greater efficiency than warmer locations. The cold, dry environment makes Alaska ideal to maximize LNG production.
Alaska is home to the first LNG export facility in North America and has reliably served the Asia market since exports began in 1969, delivering over 1,300 shipments to Japan as the country’s longest supplier.
