Project Details

  • Owner: Qilak Energy[2]
  • Parent: Lloyds Energy[2]
  • Location: North Slope, Alaska, USA[1]
  • Coordinates: TBD
  • Type: Export
  • Capacity: 4 mtpa[1]
  • Status: Proposed[1]
  • Start Year: 2026 or 2027[3]

Note: mtpa = million tonnes per year; bcfd = billion cubic feet per day


Phase 1 of the Qilak LNG project will have an export capacity of 4 million tonnes per year (MTPA) with additional unspecified capacity planned to come online in future phases, as determined by gas supply and global demand. The project will deliver natural gas to Asian markets, including Japan, Korea, China, and the Philippines. An extensive feasibility study will begin in 2020, with the target of reaching an final investment decision (FID) by 2022. The first gas shipments could begin in 2026 or 2027.[3] In July 2021, Qilak's Chairman and CEO Mead Treadwell said that the pandemic had slowed down the formal feasibility study, delaying the initial targeted FID in 2022.[4]
