The Alaska LNG project would take natural gas from the North Slope of Alaska down to a proposed plant on the Kenai Peninsula, in Nikiski, where it would be liquified, shipped out and sold.
The gas is already pumped out of the ground on the North Slope. But it isn’t currently sent to market.
To get it there, the state wants to construct an 800-mile pipeline. And last year, it got the go-ahead from environmental regulators, under then-President Donald Trump, to build the massive project.
But now the Biden administration wants to take another look.
