Port MacKenzie has 9,033 acres, 14 square miles, within the port district dedicated to commercial and industrial development. The docks are designed to efficiently export natural resources, but we can accommodate many other types of cargoes.
Port MacKenzie, located in Upper Cook Inlet, is a young port with goals for the future including a rail loading facility, fuel tank farm, and promoting the creation of a potential petrochemical facility or LNG plant. Our Barge dock is 550 ft. long and -20 ft. at low tide. Our deep draft dock accommodates the largest vessels with -60 ft. of water at low tide.
When complete, the coming Port MacKenzie Rail Extension will create the shortest rail route from the Interior to tidewater, providing the tipping point for new mineral production and the increasing exports of bulk resources.
Port MacKenzie is moving heavy industrial and bulk materials through Alaska and beyond.
The Port District consists of 9,033 acres of uplands available for commercial/industrial development. The Port MacKenzie Master Plan outlines land use designations and provides guidelines for future port improvements and development through 2031.
The 32-mile rail link will shorten the distance between the Interior and tidewater, creating the tipping point for the development of new industries with low transportation costs. Already funded $184 million by the Alaska legislature, the project is under construction in segments and needs $125 million to complete. The longest industrial rail loop in the state will provide for efficient movement of materials between ship, rail, truck and barge.
Temporary storage on the dock is allowed for up to 5 days on inbound freight and up to 10 days on outbound freight. After expiration of free time, wharf demurrage will be assessed at $.75/ton/day for the first three days and $1.50/ton/day after 3 days.

Central Alaska Energy LLC is developing a 4.8 million gallon fuel terminal at Port Mackenzie. The facility will be capable of storing several grades of product for a variety of commercial customers. The terminal will have access to multiple fuel sources in Alaska as well as the lower 48 or international supply. Options for petroleum distribution will include fuel trucks, rail cars, and marine vessels via pipeline to/from the Port MacKenzie Dock. The new terminal will serve industrial customers requiring physical storage or secure pricing for their petroleum products.
