The deadline for proposals to supply the state lead Interior Energy Project with natural gas was Monday. The Alaska Industrial Development and Export Authority is managing the project, and AIDEA spokesman Karsten Rodvik says the state corporation is considering a range of possibilities for getting affordable gas to the Interior.
“And these options that we are looking at include both Cook Inlet and North Slope LNG, and in state propane or imported propane, and small-diameter pipeline as well, so everything is on the table,” Rodvik says.
AIDEA issued an addendum to the gas RFP Monday. It says a public summary of the proposals will come out within five days, but will withhold the names of the proposers, as well as technical and commercial information. The addendum says all non-confidential information will be made available after an IEP project partner is recommended to the AIDEA board.
