The Pipeline

The backbone of the project is an 800-mile pipeline starting on the North Slope and terminating in Southcentral Alaska. With the pipeline will come a stable supply of natural gas for Alaskans, ensuring they have access to a long-term and affordable gas supply for home heating and industrial needs. This economic resource will also drive multiple industries for Alaska including refining, mining, and other industrial developments throughout resource-rich Alaska. The pipeline will transport North Slope resources to Nikiski for export to international LNG markets, ensuring demand and spurring new exploration projects throughout the state.
