  9. State nears finish for smaller gasline permitsRead the original story w/Photo

    Feb 1, 2017 | Alaska Journal of Commerce

    While much attention has been given to the large Alaska LNG Project in recent months, the Alaska Gasline Development Corp. is closing in on federal permits needed for the state's smaller plan to access North Slope natural gas. Final regulatory approval to build the 36-inch Alaska Stand Alone Pipeline project, or ASAP, with an estimated cost of about $10 billion, is still probably about a year away, but that's not bad considering the timeline to study an Alaska megaproject is usually measured in years and can take closer to a decade.
