In-State Gas Line Project Manager Resigns
November 18, 2009, Anchorage Alaska - Governor Sean Parnell today accepted the resignation of Harry Noah, in-state gas line project manager. Noah will stay in the post until a replacement is named.
Governor Parnell remains committed to pursuing an in-state gas line. Considerable work has been done evaluating a stand alone pipeline from both the North Slope and the foothills of the Brooks Range to Fairbanks and Southcentral, and a spur line to Southcentral from a major pipeline to the Lower 48.
"Harry has been a vital part of the team, and has laid a great foundation for in-state gas line options," Governor Parnell said. "We will keep this work moving forward."
The in-state gas line project manager is charged with developing design and permitting data for a small diameter natural gas pipeline from the North Slope to Cook Inlet. The data and permits would then be made available for private development of the project.
Noah will pursue a private-sector venture in Oregon. A search for Noah's replacement will begin immediately.
