Mayor’s office adds LNG project info to borough website

There is a new feature on the Kenai Peninsula Borough website, providing updates and information about the Alaska LNG project. The first posting, May 1, provides an overview of the project status and a summary of summer 2015 field work. 

The “LNG Project” link on the website — www.borough.kenai.ak.us/mayor/lng-project — will be expanded to include detailed information on the project’s proposed pipeline route from the North Slope to Nikiski, the federal environmental review process, an explanation of natural gas liquefaction, plus links to federal, state and private websites with more information on the project.

The borough’s website also will include regular summaries of oil and gas news from around the world, focusing on LNG industry news of interest to Alaskans following the multibillion-dollar proposal to pipe North Slope gas 800 miles to Nikiski for liquefaction and loading aboard specially built carriers for delivery to overseas buyers.

The new site soon will include a link for the public to sign up for the borough’s Alaska LNG project updates and oil and gas news summaries.

Larry Persily, oil and gas special assistant to Borough Mayor Mike Navarre, will produce material for the site. His contact information is lpersily@kpb.us; his work phone is  714-2158.
