  3. BP job cuts higher than previously announcedRead the original story w/Photo

    Mar 15, 2016 | Anchorage Daily News

    BP on Monday said it will reduce a larger portion of its Alaska workforce than it had announced in January as a result of new plans by the Prudhoe Bay owners to idle three of five drilling rigs. The cutbacks stem from the slide in oil prices since summer 2014 that has led to losses across the globe as the oil and gas industry slashes costs and delays projects.

  4. Should Shell have looked west for its Arctic Ocean fortune?Read the original story w/Photo

    Mar 12, 2016 | Anchorage Daily News

    Shell has kept mum about its colossal miss in the U.S. Arctic Ocean last summer, but geologists who have studied the region for decades say a natural gas "flush" may long ago have swept out the oil from the Burger prospect where Shell sank a single, unsuccessful well after seven years of effort. The theory also suggests that Shell, which announced in September it would abandon its star-crossed quest after spending more than $6 billion, might have had better luck drilling farther west.

    Mar 8, 2016 | Anchorage Daily News

    OPINION: Let's take our Alaska dividends as citizens of the owner state, but then let's pay our way as responsible owners with an eye to our children's future here.

With oil prices at their lowest since 2008, the news comes on the heels of several other announcements of job reductions and project delays as companies slash operations in Alaska.

When prices went up again in the last decade, we spent another $187 million studying the same project, without having the $5.7 billion to build it.

    Jan 24, 2016 | Anchorage Daily News

    Other than being the farthest north, west and east state, why is Alaska so different from the other 49 members of our Union? Upon becoming a state we received a 100-million-acre land grant, much like the land grant schools and some colleges received in the Lower 48. This was to help provide an income base for a large area with a small population. Upon statehood our new Commissioner of Natural Resources Phil Holdsworth set out to select lands of value for our state.

  19. 'Must-have' LNG project will just stretch Alaska tighter over a barrelRead the original story w/Photo

    Jan 11, 2016 | Anchorage Daily News

    In his first inaugural address, Ronald Reagan famously stated that "government is not the solution to our problem; government is the problem" -- hence the subsequent conservative mantra that unfettered capitalist free enterprise is the solution to our problems, and the only proper course for government is to get out of the way of private business. Strangely, our present conservative state government is now prepared to jettison conservative dogma in favor of transforming Alaska's government into the private sector via the "mother of all" projects: the Alaska Liquefied Natural Gas Project.
