LNG delivery firms recommended for rights of way

FAIRBANKS (AP) — Two companies that want to provide Fairbanks with liquefied natural gas by truck have been deemed qualified to build short North Slope pipelines.

The Alaska Department of Natural Resources is proposing to grant rights of way for North Slope pipelines to both Spectrum Alaska and Polar LNG.

The companies were determined to be fit to operate a pipeline to their proposed liquefied natural gas processing facilities.

A pipeline and a processing facility would be part of a system for each to deliver liquefied natural gas to interior Alaska by truck.

The Alaska Industrial Development and Export Authority is considering bids from the two companies plus Golden Valley Electric Association and the municipal Interior Gas Utility to become partners in a liquefied natural gas processing facility on the North Slope.
