Gasline Coalition

A diverse group of Alaskan organizations from across the state have come together to form the Alaska Gasline Coalition. The coalition’s primary purpose is to support the Alaska Gasline Development Corporation’s (AGDC) Alaska LNG project.

Alaska LNG is a large integrated gas infrastructure project with three major components: a gas treatment plant located at Prudhoe Bay, an 807-mile pipeline to Southcentral Alaska with offtakes for in-state use, and a natural gas liquefaction facility in Nikiski to produce liquefied natural gas (LNG) for export.

Alaska Gasline Coalition members help ensure their fellow Alaskans have the information necessary to be prepared to take advantage of the many opportunities created by Alaska LNG.

Coalition Benefits

AGDC provides the Alaska Gasline Coalition with regular project updates and highlights opportunities for Alaskans to get involved in moving Alaska LNG forward.
