Kenai LNG Cool Down project development in Alaska slows pace
U.S. regulatory authorities have temporarily ceased the environmental review process for Marathon subsidiary Trans-Foreland Pipeline’s planned Kenai LNG “Cool Down” project. This project would bring the dormant Kenai LNG facility in Nikiski, Alaska back online, but as an import facility bringing 7 MMcf/d to the adjacent Kenai Refinery.
The Federal Energy Regulatory Commission (FERC) was scheduled to issue its environmental assessment for Kenai on April 24 with a decision due by July 23, but these dates will be revised until the U.S. Pipeline and Hazardous Materials Safety Administration completes what it calls an “equivalency determination” on a proposed vaporizer found within the LNG storage tank area. The FERC stressed that this was not a suspension of its review of the Cool Down project.
