Natural gas from a 2004 discovery will be connected to Kenai Peninsula infrastructure by early next year under a proposal from Semco Energy subsidiary Alaska Pipeline Co. now before the Regulatory Commission of Alaska.
APC has applied to extend its authorized service area to include the route of the Red Pad Pipeline to be constructed on the southern Kenai Peninsula between Hilcorp Alaska LLC’s Red Pad and APC’s Anchor Point Pipe Line.
APC told RCA in a Sept. 14 filing that Hilcorp has stranded gas at its Red Pad northeast of Anchor Point, some 10 miles east of APC’s Anchor Point Pipe Line.
Hilcorp has requested that the line be placed in service on or before Jan. 1 of next year, APC told the commission, and said that “based upon the accelerated material acquisition program by both Hilcorp Alaska and APC, and the construction contract already awarded, APC anticipates that the Red Pad Pipeline will be complete and ready to accept gas by early December 2012.”
