2nd Annual

Alaska Oil & Gas Symposium

Challenges and Opportunities for Exploration and Development

Monday, September 18, 2006

About

Alaska has moved the gas pipeline project to the front burner and economic potential is enormous how will your business benefit?

Plans are moving ahead for the construction of a $25 billion pipeline to carry natural gas from Alaska to the lower 48 states but timing is important as Alaska needs to get the gas to market before a flood of foreign LNG. Today the project is finally technically and economically feasible and creates enormous commercial opportunities, but there are huge challenges to be surmounted before gas is actually flowing.

As the project gears up for an expected multi-year design phase, some key economic and political issues are being hashed out. American Conference Institute'scollection of presentation materials from "Challenges and Opportunities for Exploration and Development in Alaska Oil and Gas" will provide you with the most recent critical developments in this dynamic oil and gas sector, the next steps on collaboration and coordination between the U.S. and Canada and the latest on permitting and construction, regulatory updates and the supply/demand forecast. Top level industry leaders and decision makers have provided presentation materials that focused on:

  • Changes to the U.S. Energy Policy Act and how it is being implemented
  • Alaska natural gas pipeline challenges and opportunities
  • Cook inlet hydrocarbons: an update and look forward
  • Implications of the state tax overhaul and next steps to be taken
  • Opportunities expediting an Alaska gas pipeline
  • Updates on dialogue with Aboriginal Groups and agreements reached on accommodation and benefits
