The Matanuska-Susitna Borough alleges the state-led Alaska LNG project team has presented “numerous factual errors and willfully misleading statements” to federal regulators and failed to perform “a good faith and unbiased analysis” of borough land at Port MacKenzie for the proposed gas liquefaction plant and marine terminal.

The borough on Sept. 14 filed 193 pages with the Federal Energy Regulatory Commission (FERC), supporting its property as a possible site for the multibillion-dollar investment and extensively rebutting information the Alaska Gasline Development Corp. (AGDC) presented to FERC in July.

But more than just debating the site’s attributes — or detractions — the borough urged the commission “to refrain from further action” on the Alaska LNG project. “FERC must not proceed with its review of AGDC’s application” until the state team “has presented a fair and accurate analysis of Port MacKenzie as an alternative site,” the borough said in the first page of its filing.
