The Alaska LNG project will hold community meetings in Anchorage July 15 and Fairbanks July 17. The project's community outreach team has already held information and question-and-answer sessions in several Alaska communities along the proposed natural gas pipeline route including Trapper Creek, Talkeetna, Houston, Wasilla and Nikiski.
The Anchorage meeting is set for 6 to 8 p.m. Tuesday, July 15, in Summit Hall (lower level) at the Egan Center on Fifth Avenue downtown. The Alaska LNG presentation will start at 6:30 p.m. The Fairbanks meeting is scheduled for 6 to 8 p.m. Thursday, July 17, in the Gazebo Room at the Wedgewood Resort, 1212 Wedgewood Drive. The presentation will start at 6:30 p.m.
The project team will give an overview of the $45 billion to $65 billion proposed development to move Alaska North Slope gas to a liquefaction plant at Nikiski for shipment as LNG to overseas markets. The team also will update the public on studies under way as part of the preparations for the project's environmental review by the Federal Energy Regulatory Commission.
