Alaska's New Governor Won’t Have a Say on $43 Billion Project Until It is Fully Examined

Alaska’s Governor Mike Dunleavy will “withhold judgement” on the $43 billion liquefied natural gas project until the “administration can fully understand the costs, risks, and potential benefits.”

The 800-mile pipeline will move North Slope gas to Nikiski at a plant that would liquefy it for shipment. Sales will be mostly targeted to buyers in the Asia market.

Dunleavy is the third governor to oversee the project which launched in 2012.

An approval for the project is not expected until February 2020.
