A list of 13 candidates has been narrowed to two in the running to develop a project to deliver liquefied natural gas to Interior Alaska (see Daily GPI, Oct. 14), the Alaska Industrial Development and Export Authority said. Proposals by Salix Inc.(Avista Corp.) and Spectrum LNG LLCare the finalists. A final decision is expected early next year. The Salix proposal does not include transport but can accommodate either rail or truck transport from Cook Inlet. Spectrum provided two alternatives to source gas, North Slope and Cook Inlet, but did not provide for transportation, leaving it to the utilities that would be receiving the gas. Trucking is possible from both locations and rail is possible from Cook Inlet.
