Senator Bishop Responds to North Slope LNG Project Announcement from AIDEA
FAIRBANKS-In response to today’s progress on the North Slope LNG project, Senator Click Bishop, R-Fairbanks released the following statement:
“Today's announcement by AIDEA selecting MWH Americas, Inc. to build and operate the LNG plant on Alaska’s North Slope is great news for Interior Alaska. Through this announcement along with the selection by the Regulatory Commission of Alaska of Interior Gas Utility to distribute gas in the greater Fairbanks area, we will finally see some energy relief which should also help to improve the winter air quality. I would like to thank the entire Legislature for supporting the bill that made this possible and Governor Parnell for his leadership in bringing this project to reality.”
