The project will move North Slope natural gas through the resource-rich center of Alaska providing clean-burning natural gas to fuel local markets, mining, and industrial needs. A new liquefaction facility built in Nikiski (North America’s longest serving LNG export location) will provide access to the expanding LNG market.
The Prudhoe Bay and Point Thomson fields anchor the project on the North Slope. These fields will produce, on average, about 3.5 billion cubic feet of gas per day with approximately 75 percent from the Prudhoe Bay field and 25 percent from the Point Thomson field.
This integrated natural gas project is one of the most important projects being built in the United States. It is Alaska’s priority project and has been widely studied by stakeholders, federal agencies, and State regulators.
