Alaska Lt. Governor to Join Industry Leaders to Discuss North American LNG
Exports, Dec. 12, Houston Four Seasons Hotel
HOUSTON, TX -- (Marketwired) -- 10/17/13 -- Alaskan Lieutenant
Governor Mead Treadwell is slated to deliver the luncheon address,
Dec. 12, 2013, to the North American LNG Exports conference at the
Houston Four Seasons hotel. Organized annually by Zeus Development
Corporation, the meeting brings together project developers,
financiers, analysts, regulators, contractors and elected offices to
discuss and in some cases debate this exciting trend.
"The push from the State of Alaska to develop a new export terminal
is essential to getting the project off the ground," noted Tom
Campbell, Zeus' head of analysis. "Alaskans benefit greatly from
their natural resources. The state government is working hard to
facilitate a project that could benefit Alaskans for 50 years."
On October 7, project partners ExxonMobil, BP, ConocoPhillips and
TransCanada reported their planned site for the export terminal in
the Nikiski area of the Kenai Peninsula, south of Anchorage. Natural
gas will be sourced from the North Slope via an 800-mile pipeline.
The liquefaction and export plant will be one of the world's largest,
exporting of up to 3.5 billion cubic feet per day (25 million tonnes
per year). In July, the U.S. set a record by producing and marketing
73 billion cubic feet of natural gas. First shipments from the Alaska
project are expected in the 2021 to 2022 time frame. Estimates put
the project cost between US$45 billion and US$65 billion with much of
the budget going toward pipeline construction.
Lt. Governor Treadwell will be joined by project developers of other
major North American export projects, including Michael S Smith,
chairman and CEO, Freeport LNG; Martin Houston, executive director
and COO, BG Group; and Jamie Welch, group CFO, Energy Transfer, among
