Governor Walker pitches Alaska LNG project to China's president Jinping

Alaska’s governor Bill Walker marketed the state’s resource development opportunities to the Chinese president Xi Jinping, during the latter’s visit to Anchorage. 

Speaking during the Chinese president visit to Anchorage, Alaska, governor Walker said the state has potential in its “oil and gas, tourism, fish, air cargo and mineral resource industries.”

Local media reported Walker as saying that China could become a customer or an equity partner in the Alaska gasline and LNG project, making the entire value chain available.

Alaska is looking to develop an LNG project including a liquefaction facility in the Nikiski area on the Kenai Peninsula, an 800-mile large diameter pipeline, up to eight compression stations, at least five take-off points for in-state gas delivery, a gas treatment plant located on the North Slope and transmission lines to transport gas from Prudhoe Bay and Point Thomson to the gas treatment plant.

The project would have an export capacity of 20 million metric tons of liquefied natural gas per year, and according to the timetable of the Alaska Gasline Development Corporation (AGDC) that has taken over project leadership in January, FEED work could begin in 2018 with construction kicking off in 2019.
