AGDC Port MacKenzie not feasible For LNG terminal

first_imgThe new analysis of Port Mackenzie will be incorporated into FERC’s environmental impact statement for the proposed Alaska LNG project. The Mat-Su Borough does not accept AGDC’s analysis, writing to FERC on July 20 that the borough “has already identified several aspects of AGDC’s response with which it disagrees.” Nikiski was identified as the preferred site location over four years ago, after more than two dozen possible locations were analyzed. The Mat-Su Borough filed a complaint on January 9, with the Federal Regulatory Energy Commission (FERC) stating that the project and regulators “improperly and intentionally excluded” the borough’s Port MacKenzie as a “reasonable alternative” for the proposed liquefied natural gas plant. According to Alaska LNG project updates prepared by Larry Persily, former federal coordinator for Alaska North Slope gas line projects: “The Alaska Gasline Development Corp. (AGDC) responded to federal regulators July 13 that it would not be possible to build and operate the LNG plant and marine terminal at Port MacKenzie “without constraining either existing or planned uses of the complex, or of the proposed LNG facility and its marine terminal.””last_img
