Rep. Young’s Statement On The Denali Project
Washington, D.C. - Alaskan Congressman Don Young released the following statement this afternoon following news that BP and ConocoPhillips are ending their joint Denali gas pipeline project:
"I commend ConocoPhillips and BP for taking the initiative to invest their resources in this project and for their interest in developing a gas pipeline. While it is disappointing that they have decided not to pursue the project further, I can understand that these companies must make decisions based on economics and what can be profitable for them. I still believe that Alaskan gas can be developed and will do everything in my power at the federal level to help Alaska make it a reality."
