Briefs — Alaska LNG, Texas Alliance of Energy Producers, Columbia Gas Transmission, FERC

The state of Alaska extended its cooperation agreement with Japan-based consortium Resources Energy Inc. (REI) to develop Cook Inlet natural gas (see Daily GPI,Dec. 29, 2014). The agreement extension comes three months after Gov. Bill Walker met with more than 25 companies and government agencies, including the prefectures of Kyoto and Hyogo, during an international liquefied natural gas (LNG) conference in Tokyo, where he told more than a thousand attendees of the Alaskan LNG opportunity (see Daily GPI,Sept. 23). The agreement, which was extended two years to Dec. 14, 2017, encourages the development of Cook Inlet natural gas to provide Alaskans low-cost energy while also supplying Japanese consumers. “The world market will certainly benefit from Alaska’s rich natural gas reserves, but my No. 1 priority is ensuring that we work toward affordable energy for Alaskan families and businesses.” Walker said. “Extending this agreement with REI shows Japanese consumers that Alaska is committed to exporting liquefied natural gas.”
