MWH Wins Contract to Develop Natural Gas for Alaska

September 23, 2014 By Linda Hardesty

MWH Global signed a concession agreement with the Alaska Industrial Development and Export Authority (AIDEA) for the Interior Energy Project, which is designed to provide affordable energy to Interior Alaska.

MWH signed the agreement on behalf of Northern Lights Energy, a newly formed wholly-owned subsidiary of MWH. As the concessionaire, Northern Lights Energy will arrange financing for the project and manage the project delivery.

Northern Lights will have the right to sell the liquefied natural gas (LNG) the plant produces. Northern Lights will also have the authority to move forward with negotiating gas purchase agreements with the Interior utilities  and have the ability to sell natural gas directly to natural gas wholesale markets in Alaska’s Interior and on the North Slope
