      Alaska, Exxon deal opens way for LNG exports
      By Yereth Rosen ANCHORAGE, Alaska | Fri Mar 30, 2012

      (Reuters) - Alaska has reached a settlement with Exxon Mobil Corp... paving the way for a $26 billion pipeline and an export plant for LNG.

      ... Exxon and partners BP and ConocoPhillips have agreed to build a pipeline from the field to deliver 70,000 barrels per day of liquids into the Trans Alaska Pipeline System.

      ...Alaska Governor Sean Parnell said the companies had agreed to work with TransCanada Corp on the new pipeline project, which proposes to export gas just as Alaska's 40-year-old and only existing LNG plant at Kenai closes down.

      Point Thomson holds about 8 trillion cubic feet of natural gas, and the companies are expected to join a growing list of U.S. projects aiming to export LNG as domestic production soars...

      TransCanada said its Alaska pipeline project, which could take gas from Point Thomson, would concentrate on the LNG export option...

        LNG fills gap as Japan prepares to take last nuclear unit offline

        LNG-Soaked Japan Burns Oil as Reactors Sit Idle: Energy Markets

        March 28 (Bloomberg) -- Japan is consuming the most oil in four years as it runs out of capacity to use liquefied natural gas as a stopgap for idled nuclear-power plants.

        ...Japan, the world's biggest buyer of LNG, has imported record amounts of the fuel in response to the March 11, 2011 earthquake and tsunami that wrecked three reactors at the Fukushima plant northeast of Tokyo, triggering the worst radiation leak since Chernobyl in the 1980s. The country relied on nuclear sources for almost 30 percent of its electricity before the disaster.

        LNG Processing Limits

        Japan may already be purchasing more LNG than it can process, data from the country's trade ministry show. The nation's power producers have enough gas-fired generators for about 63 gigawatts of electricity a year, according to trade ministry data. That's equivalent to about 63 million metric tons of LNG. Japan imported almost 71 million tons in the year through March 2011.

        Japanese officials are wary of turning back to nuclear power. With the closure of a Tokyo Electric Power Co. unit in Niigata prefecture for maintenance on March 26, Japan has one of its 54 reactors in operation, Bloomberg data show.
        Assuming none of its reactors return before the last remaining unit shuts for maintenance on May 5, the country will have no atomic power. Japan's utilities are running stress tests to assess whether reactors can withstand the kind of earthquakes and tsunamis that caused the meltdown at Fukushima...

            B.C. to build 3 liquefied natural gas plants by 2020

            http://www.ctvbc.ctv.ca/servlet/an/l...shColumbiaHome


            Dirk Meissner , The Canadian Press Friday Feb. 3, 2012

            Premier Christy Clark...was at Burnaby's BCIT campus Friday to support plans to pipe natural gas from northeast B.C. to the north coast at Kitimat, where it will be frozen and placed on tankers bound for Asia. The LNG export plans are major components of Clark's B.C. Jobs Plan, but the province has to move quickly because it faces competition from Australia and Qatar for the Asian markets.

            At a briefing prior to the official announcement, government officials said Clark will introduce changes to provincial energy self-sufficiency policies to make room for the LNG plants, which require enormous amounts of energy to operate....
            Clark has often said the LNG developments offer the province a generational opportunity to create jobs and revenues, and it is up to the government to find green solutions.

              DOE to halt issuing LNG export licenses

              http://www.argusmedia.com/pages/News...77612&menu=yesSabine Pass liquefaction plant in Louisiana secured DOE permission to export to all international markets in May, following an eight-month review.

              But other proposed projects will have to wait until DOE reviews two studies it has commissioned to look into cumulative impacts of liquefaction projects and exports, Anderson said today in Washington, DC, during a briefing hosted by the US Energy Association.

              The studies are expected to be completed in the first quarter of 2012, he said...

                Jordan Cove investors may build power plant
                By Gail Elber, Staff Writer November 17, 2010

                ...if the Jordan Cove facility is built, it would benefit the South Dunes (LNG) plant because gas being shipped from Jordan Cove would keep the (Coos Bay) 12-inch pipeline full, Braddock said.

                He said LNG shippers, the customers of Jordan Cove, probably would prefer to have their gas shipped via the county's (existing) 12-inch pipeline rather than the proposed 36-inch Pacific Connector. That's because transmission rates would be cheaper on the county's pipeline.

                Currently, during the winter, demand for gas in other parts of the West sometimes means that the Coos County pipeline isn't filled to capacity...

                Just as the LNG plant would benefit the power plant, the power plant would benefit the Jordan Cove facility.

                  Canada Approves Second Liquefied Natural Gas Export License

                  By Edward Welsch DOW JONES NEWSWIRES

                  ...The BC LNG Export Co-operative, comprising 13 small producers, received a 20-year license to ship 2.4 billion cubic meters a year to markets in Asia from the western port city of Kitimat, B.C. The project is a joint-venture between Houston'sLNG Partners LLC and British Columbia's Haisla First Nation. It envisions allowing smaller producers to export natural gas abroad where it can fetch better prices...

                  BC LNG's export license is the second issued by the Canadian government, after it granted an export license last year to a larger LNG export joint venture between Apache Corp. (APA), Encana Corp. (ECA) and EOG Resources Inc. (EOG), also located in Kitimat.

                      Widening of Kitimat gas pipeline wins approval

                      http://www.calgaryherald.com/busines...618/story.html


                      B.C. terminal would ship Canadian gas to Asia
                      *By Dina O'Meara, Calgary Herald April 18, 2012

                      CALGARY - Proponents of what could be Canada's first liquefied natural gas export terminal have won an application to widen the pipeline feeding the proposed facility in Kitimat, B.C.

                      The revamped $1-billion Pacific Trails pipeline, stretching from the northeast corner of the province to the marine terminal, will now be 106 centimetres (42 inches) in diameter instead of 91 cm (36 in.), according to documents from the B.C. Environmental Assessment Office.

                      The Summit-to-Kitimat pipeline will be the main supply link for Encana Corp., Apache Canada and EOG Resources' $4.5-billion LNG facility, set to launch in 2015...

                      "The proponent has indicated to (environmental assessment office) that the purpose of the larger diameter pipe is not to increase the flow of gas, but to decrease friction of gas movement and therefore energy usage and operational costs," the partnership said in its Dec. 19 application...

                      Canadian producers, wallowing in abundant North American shale gas volumes, are seeking to profit from strong Pan Asian demand for LNG. Energy firms across North America have been jostling for position to access markets in Japan, Korea and China where the super-cooled fuel fetches approximately $16 US compared with $2 US in New York.

                      The $4.5-billion Kitimat LNG project was the first in Canada to be approved for an export licence by federal regulators in October 2011...

                            Re: Alaska LNG exports to Japan mark 40th aniversary

                            We need to export natural gas for the sake of our economy. See usdebtclock.org . We are broke. We can have natural gas at half the price of gasoline while still exporting. We need a lot of investment to make the switch to a natural gas economy. The infrastructure will take too long if the price of natural gas does not allow a fair profit. We need to balance our import/export deficit, and to improve our economy while increasing jobs. The natural gas boom is worldwide. Almost everyone has it. We have the technology, but it can go anywhere. Foreign countries will outbid us and our companies will focus on helping them, and making a profit. I have no stocks, by the way.
