The Alaska gas pipeline is a project proposed from the joint efforts between TransCanada and Exxon Mobile Corp. to develop a natural gas pipeline under the AGIA a.k.a. Alaska Gas Inducement Act, adopted by Alaska Legistature in 2007. The project originally proposed two options during its open season offering over a three-month period from April 30 to July 30, 2010. An 'open season' in layman's terms is when a company conducts a non-binding show of interest or poll in the marketplace, they ask potential customers "if we build it, will you come?".

  • The Alaska gas pipeline is a project proposed from the joint efforts between TransCanada and Exxon Mobile Corp. to develop a natural gas pipeline under the AGIA a.k.a. Alaska Gas Inducement Act, adopted by Alaska Legistature in 2007. The project originally proposed two options during its open season offering over a three-month period from April 30 to July 30, 2010. An 'open season' in layman's terms is when a company conducts a non-binding show of interest or poll in the marketplace, they ask potential customers "if we build it, will you come?". The first option was a pipeline from Alaska's North Slope through Alaska, the Yukon Territory, British Columbia and to Alberta Canada for a total distance of approx. 1,700 miles. Gas was then to be delivered on through existing pipelines serving the major North American markets. The second option proposed was to transport natural gas from the North Slope to Valdez, AK for a distance of approx. 800 miles. Once in Valdez it would be converted to liquiefied natural gas in facilities built by others and then shipped to North American and International markets. An additional component to each option is a world-class gas treatment plant (GTP) and Point Thomson natural gas pipeline. The proposed building site for the GTP, gas treatment plant, would be at North Slope's Prudhoe Bay facilities which then treats the gas to be shipped in the pipeline. The Point Thomson field would have approximately 58 miles of pipeline to connect natural gas supplies from the field to the plant and the pipeline. Both options give Alaskan communities the opportunuty to acquire natural gas from a minimum of five delivery points along the pipeline. An Alberta option provides for the ability to have local natural gas delivery in Canada. The project is developed by TransCanada Corp. and ExxonMobil. TransCanada has secured state seed money and a license from the state of Alaska to build and operate a pipeline, but does not yet have federal approvals needed to start construction. On June 11, 2009 TransCanada announced it had formed an agreement with ExxonMobil to work together in bringing the gas to market. In May 2012 TransCanada formally closed their open season. TransCanada's license with the AGIA required that they file a complete application with the Federal Energy Regulatory Commission (FERC) in October 2012 for a certificate to build and operate the pipeline. In May 2012 the state of Alaska granted TransCanada a two-year postponment of the deadline to give the company and North Slope producers more time to explore the best market for Alaska gas. By the summer of 2014 the project became more focused on export so the state and TransCanada terminated their AGIA agreement. (en)
