Gas line to Valdez would benefit Peninsula

Rep. Mike Chenault has been pushing an LNG gasline from the North Slope to Nikiski, but this would threaten existing gas fields in Cook Inlet.

Smaller gas/oil developers have been revitalizing the Cook inlet fields since 2009, and it's unwise to jeopardize this. A North Slope gas line terminating in Nikiski provides direct competition with the smaller oil/gas developers.

At the same time, a gas pipeline LNG project is advantageous to Nikiski as long as it does not terminate on the Kenai Peninsula. Kenai based companies such as GLM, Team, Iisco, AES and others stand to benefit directly from the gas pipeline.
