Alaska in the Driver's Seat: Destination Unknown
Extra Edition, October 5, 2016
Tomorrow, October 6th, the day a majority of Alaskan's will have roughly $1,000 deposited into their bank accounts, is also the day of the Alliance's annual Industry Update Forum in Fairbanks.
The theme this year "Alaska in the Driver's Seat: Destination Unknown" was chosen because it applies to the biggest issues facing our state; restructuring of the Permanent Fund, an Alaska LNG project, continued exploration for oil, continued production of oil, the size and scope of our government and many other critical issues.
With a relatively new administration taking a different turn on the road to resource development, we aren't sure where we are headed.
The audience will hear from industry leaders about global LNG markets, a North Slope activity update, the exciting new find at Smith Bay by Caelus Energy Alaska, the status of the Donlin Gold project and many other topics.

The opportunities for Alaska are endless, so long as we choose the right road and avoid the fate of Robert Frost:
I shall be telling this with a sigh
Somewhere ages and ages hence:
Two roads diverged in a wood, and I,
I took the one less traveled by,
And that has made all the difference.
