The backbone of the Alaska LNG Project is an 807-mile, 42-inch diameter mainline pipeline, including an offshore pipeline section crossing Cook Inlet. With a daily capacity of 3.3 billion cubic feet, multiple compressor stations along the pipeline will help carry natural gas from the North Slope to Southcentral Alaska. The pipeline would be a buried pipeline with the exception of two planned aerial water crossings, aboveground crossings of active faults, and the offshore pipeline. Multiple interconnection points along the pipeline will provide for in-state gas distribution to Alaskans.

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. Making this clean energy resource available will also benefit multiple industries in Alaska including refining, mining, and other industrial developments throughout our resource-rich state. The pipeline will transport North Slope natural gas to Nikiski for export to international LNG markets, ensuring future demand and spurring new oil and gas exploration projects throughout the state.

Details include:

  • 807-mile, 42-inch diameter natural gas pipeline
  • Multiple interconnection points for in-state gas distribution
  • Multiple compressor stations
  • 2,075 psig (143 bar) operating pressure
  • Average throughput of 3.1 billion cubic feet per day; maximum capacity of 3.3 billion cubic feet per day
