6/28/23 - ALASKA UTILITIES WORKING GROUP - PHASE I ASSESSMENT: COOK INLET GAS SUPPLY PROJECT by Berkeley Research Group (“BRG”) - In order to meet the expected supply shortfall, one or more options need to be selected to progress to an active engineering effort by the end of 2023. In order to meet the expected gas shortfall in 2027-2028, there is a limited set of options that can deliver, namely LNG imports in various forms, and all of them are still at a stage where uncertainties and risks related to design and feasibility need to be resolved before choosing a specific design configuration. Other options, such as a gas pipeline from the North Slope, can meet long-term demand most economically, but are not expected to be online by 2027-2028 or even reach a construction decision in the timeframe where alternatives would need to be sanctioned.
