    Borough, Nikiski seek to have greater participation ...

    The Kenai Peninsula Borough is seeking an official role in federal permitting of plans to export North Slope natural gas to Asia via a 806-mile pipeline to a liquefaction plant and export terminal planned for Nikiski - where the Kenai Peninsula Borough intends to keep it, countering efforts by other local governments to propose other locations. At their Tuesday meeting, the Kenai Peninsula Borough Assembly voted to petition the agency leading the LNG project's environmental permitting - the Federal Energy Regulatory Commission - for intervenor status in the gasline's environmental impact statement, which would allow the borough to request rehearing of FERC decisions or appeal them to a U.S Circuit Court.
