    A small natural gas producer in Cook Inlet, hoping to liquidate assets under a reorganization plan filed in U.S. bankruptcy court in Alaska, could soon be selling everything from functioning gas wells to front-end loaders and pickup trucks. But rather than an "auction-style" unloading of its industrial bric-a-brac, Aurora Gas believes the highest value will come if the company is sold in its entirety.

    Apr 4, 2017 | Anchorage Daily News

Last May, REI announced it would be entering the front-end engineering and design, or FEED, stage of the project with a focus on lowering its overall cost.

    Mar 18, 2017 | Anchorage Daily News

    An easily excitable friend wondered the other day: If Alaska is an oil state, which it most certainly is, and if it has a spending problem, which it most certainly does, why is it dorking around, spending boatloads of cash on a mega-LNG project when the real dough is in oil? "It makes absolutely no sense," he huffed. "Why not go after more of what made you rich? It's like slurping broth when you could be having New England clam chowder."
