Pantheon Resources, Alaska LNG developer sign agreement on natural gas sales

(Reuters)Pantheon Resources has signed an agreement establishing the terms for future sales of its natural gas to a unit of state-backed Alaska Gasline Development Corporation.

Pantheon subsidiary Great Bear Pantheon entered the agreement with a unit of AGDC to outline key commercial terms that will be part of a binding "take-or-pay" deal after AGDC makes a final investment decision (FID) on a proposed pipeline from Alaska's North Slope to its Southcentral region.

The pipeline FID is currently planned for the middle of 2025.

The agreement details plans for Pantheon to supply AGDC with up to 500 MMft3d of natural gas at a maximum price of $1 per MMBtu in current currency values, the company said. The agreement will have an initial length of 20 yr with the potential for extension beyond that, it added.

AGDC is a state-owned company developing the Alaska LNG project, a federally approved liquefied natural gas (LNG) export plant that could export around 20 metric MMtpy of LNG starting 2029. Development of the North Slope to Southcentral pipeline is the first phase of that project.

Pantheon is developing the Ahpun and Kodiak fields in Alaska, which are estimated to hold close to 5 Bft3 of recoverable natural gas resources, according to the company.

A final gas sales agreement between AGDC and Pantheon will depend on the companies making FIDs on both their respective projects, Pantheon said.
