    The history of Anchorage contains many surprises, said Charles Wohlforth, author of "From the Shores of Ship Creek," the "legacy" book of the Anchorage Centennial Celebration.

  5. Federal official says continued low oil prices could threaten pipelineRead the original story w/Photo

    May 28, 2015 | Anchorage Daily News

    The top official at the federal Energy Information Administration on Wednesday said he's concerned about the viability of the trans-Alaska oil pipeline if production drops too low, saying that oil prices rise might not rise above $100 a barrel until 2030 or later. But Adam Sieminski, EIA administrator, said that during his more than 40 years projecting oil prices, he has routinely seen geopolitical events flare up and boost prices after they've dipped.

  6. Compass: EPA claims too much power under the Clean Water ActRead the original story

    Apr 24, 2014 | Anchorage Daily News

    What would Alaskans say if a federal agency retroactively vetoed permits for development of Prudhoe Bay, declaring it never should have been allowed on the North Slope? And what if a federal agency halted efforts to reopen the Nikiski LNG terminal, without any right of appeal, because a tiny portion of the property was once considered wetlands? While these scenarios might have once seemed far-fetched, all of them - and more - will be possible if the dramatic expansion of EPA's power under the Clean Water Act continues unchecked. At issue is Section 404 of that law, relating to permits for projects that generate dredge or fill material.

    May 22, 2015 | Anchorage Daily News

    OPINION: The shutdowns taking place at oil patches Outside prove beyond question that the message in BP, ConocoPhillips, and Exxon's $16 million ad campaign to influence Alaskan voters was not true. Somewhere high up in a London tower, BP's board members got a knee slapping laugh as they read Roger Marks' April 25 Alaska Dispatch News commentary justifying the Alaska Legislature's decision to take money from public savings and pay BP to haul our oil away.

    Alaskans are playing a bigger role in an international project that seeks to link Europe and Asia with a fiber-optic cable running along the Arctic Ocean, with anticipated offshoots to remote Alaska communities and the oil-field complex of Prudhoe Bay. But while the Alaska phase of the project remains on track to be completed by the end of next year, the 10,000-mile-long effort connecting Japan with the United Kingdom won't happen within that time frame, as previously hoped.

    When you live at the top of the world, you might expect that getting training for jobs in your area might be a bit more difficult and involve a lot of travel than it would in the state's urban centers.

  17. Caelus hopes to extract millions of barrels of oil through North Slope frackingRead the original story w/Photo

    May 1, 2015 | Anchorage Daily News

    State officials hope North Slope newcomer Caelus Energy Alaska can crack the code on a tricky oil prospect along the Arctic Ocean and lay the groundwork for similar opportunities scattered across the region. Success at the Nuna field west of Prudhoe Bay, where Caelus will employ fracking techniques developed in the Lower 48 shale boom, could have widespread benefits if lessons learned can be applied to other fields with oil trapped in "tight" rock with little porosity, state officials said.

    Apr 22, 2015 | Anchorage Daily News

    ConocoPhillips expects its oil production in Alaska to be flat over the near term, as increased development drilling and a slate of projects currently in development will offset "unmitigated" field declines to keep production levels "roughly flat" through 2017. If so, the next few years would be a rarity in a basin where oil production has been consistently declining for nearly three decades -- save a brief uptick when ConocoPhillips brought the Alpine field into production nearly 15 years ago.

    Apr 17, 2015 | Anchorage Daily News

    Cross one thing off the long list of possible apocalyptic climate-change scenarios: A new scientific analysis concludes that a "carbon bomb" of greenhouse gases emitted from thawing terrestrial permafrost is not likely. Permafrost on land around the circumpolar north will likely continue to thaw and release carbon dioxide and methane, but at a gradual rate through the end of the century and beyond, said the study, published last week in the journal Nature .
