ConocoPhillips President & CEO Commits to Alaska
At a breakfast this morning in Anchorage, Jim Mulva, President & CEO of ConocoPhillips, announced that the company would "commit billions of dollars in Alaska with [an] improved business climate." Mr. Mulva spoke specifically of how ConocoPhillips wants to work with Alaskans to help achieve Governor Parnell's goal of reaching one million barrels of oil production per day within the next ten years. He pledged that changes being discussed in Juneau now would lead to new investment in satellite fields and other potential multi-billion dollar investments to increase drilling, production, and ultimately jobs for Alaskans.
Governor Knowles Urges Change
Former Alaska Governor, Tony Knowles, introduced Mr. Mulva during the breakfast. He agrees with Governor Parnell and stated, "There's no time to lose." He went onto say, ".business as usual is not acceptable. Without change the pipeline is going to be running empty." Governor Knowles talked of how during his Administration and faced with low oil prices, Republicans and Democrats, Senators and Representatives, joined forces to encourage new investment in Alaska's oil patch.
