The Alaska LNG Project will host an open house in Nikiski on Thursday as the project moves into the 2015 field work season.
The community meeting is one of more than 100 project organizers plan to hold in 2015, said Alaska LNG Socioeconomic Team Lead Michael Nelson during a Wednesday presentation to the Soldotna City Council.
The focus of the meeting will be on the summer fieldwork that the project plans to conduct.
Nelson said the group would also be hosting the first of several business information sessions including one in Kenai on April 29.
“That’s really the first opportunity for us to kind of open the door and talk about opportunities that will be coming down the road and get businesses really engaged and informed on those opportunities so that we can all be prepared to participate in those,” Nelson said.
Some of the upcoming projects in 2015 include a waterway suitability assessment with the Coast Guard and a highway relocation feasibility study on the Kenai Spur Highway.
Nelson said community members should weigh in with their concerns and comments. The project has an office at 130 Trading Bay Road, Suite 320, in Kenai.
The Alaska LNG open house meeting will be held from 6-8 p.m. at the Nikiski Community Center.
A business information session will be held in Kenai on April 29 from 2-5p.m. at the Cannery Lodge, 2101 Bowpicker Lane, Unit 13.
