A longtime Japanese LNG industry engineer is raising fundamental concerns about the schematics behind major portions of the $43 billion Alaska LNG Project.

A semi-retired process engineer from Tokyo, Keiji Akiyama said in multiple interviews that he believes the Alaska Gasline Development Corp. is on a path to repeating the mistakes made in numerous other large LNG projects across the globe without wholesale changes to the design of the LNG plant with capacity of 20 million tons per year planned for the terminus of the project in Nikiski.

Akiyama, most recently a senior LNG technical advisor for INPEX Corp., Japan’s largest oil and gas company, according to his resume, said he began following the Alaska LNG Project after an industry friend asked him to review the design of the small Kenai LNG plant when ConocoPhillips put it up for sale in late 2016.
