Alaska’s LNG: Then and Now
Governor Frank Murkowski
Friday, December 15th
The Petroleum Club of Anchorage
Alaska has a long history of trying to develop a natural gas pipeline dating back to the 1970s. The Administration and the Alaska Gasline Development Corporation have made significant progress toward building LNG relationships, with the potential to be providing gas to Alaskans and exporting LNG around 2024. What can we do in the meantime to enhance our revenues, plan for future projects, and prepare for a time in the near future when a project to transport Alaska North Slope gas to market is economically feasible?
CWN hosted Governor Frank Murkowski to discuss the history of Alaska natural gas contacts, negotiations, and changes in the world LNG market.
Governor Bill Walker and ADGC President Keith Meyer were also on hand to answer questions form the audience.
