The Office of Fossil Energy gives notice of receipt of an application filed on July 18, 2014, by, Alaska LNG Project LLC submits this application requesting long-term authorization to export 20 million metric tons per annum (“MTPA”) of liquefied natural gas (“LNG”) (approximately 929 billion cubic feet (“Bcf”) per annum of natural gas using a conversion factor of 46.467 Bcf1 of natural gas per million metric tons of LNG) produced from Alaska sources for a 30-year period. The requested 30-year export term is fully supported herein by the accompanying studies and is appropriate and required due to the unique nature of the proposed Alaska LNG project (“Project”), including the size, scope, costs, required upstream development, and project development timeline that are more significant than any LNG project in the lower 48 states of the United States (“lower 48”). Consistent therewith, Alaska LNG Project LLC requests that the authorization commence on the earlier of (i) the date of first export from the liquefaction facility or (ii) 12 years from the date the requested authorization is granted. Comment period is now closed.
