  • The Alaska Pipeline Project proposes to design, permit and construct a new natural gas pipeline system beginning near Alaska's Prudhoe Bay field and extending over one of two alternative routes.
  • One route, the Alberta option, would extend from Prudhoe Bay to points near Fairbanks, and Delta Junction, and then to the Alaska-Canada border, where the pipeline would connect with a new pipeline in Canada. The pipeline in Canada would extend from the Alaska-Canada border to link up with pipeline systems near Boundary Lake, Alberta, Canada, providing the capability of transporting natural gas into the United States.
  • An alternative pipeline route, the Valdez LNG option, would extend from Prudhoe Bay through points near Fairbanks and Delta Junction, and then to LNG facilities (to be built by third parties) near Valdez, Alaska.
