Itemized work on gas line confidential

By Associated Press 3:50 PM June 20, 2014
JUNEAU –

State reimbursements to TransCanada Corp. in pursuit of a natural gas pipeline are expected to total about $330 million. But the list of the itemized project work is considered confidential.

Natural Resources department spokeswoman Elizabeth Bluemink says the list contains competitively sensitive proprietary information. She said by email that protecting “this commercially sensitive information continues to be in the state’s interest,” given work underway on a proposed liquefied natural gas project.

She said state agencies working on the project have access to the information and related work products.

With state support, TransCanada pursued a pipeline that would serve North America markets. But it gained no traction.

The two recently ended that relationship but started another in pursuit of the LNG project, which would serve overseas markets and involve other players.
