Industry Brief

The Office of the Federal Coordinator for Alaska Natural Gas Transportation Projects has closed due to lack of funding (see Daily GPIDec. 29, 2014). Its website, arcticgas.gov, is being maintained, but not updated, by the U.S. Arctic Research Commission, with assistance of Alaska Resources Library & Information Services at the University of Alaska Anchorage. Much of the office's work also can be accessed online at The Pipe Files, a searchable digital library of hundreds of Alaska gasline project documents going back to the 1970s. Congress created the Office of the Federal Coordinator in 2004 to help expedite and coordinate federal permitting for construction of a pipeline to move Alaska North Slope natural gas to North American markets. The current project under consideration by North Slope oil and gas producers involves piping the gas to a liquefaction plant in Southcentral Alaska for liquefaction and export of LNG (see Daily GPIMarch 4).
