To the editor: If you haven’t heard, Alaska’s North Slope is on her way to another great era of substantial development. Some may even call it a renaissance. With the help of Senate Bill 21, our fiscal climate has attracted considerable monetary investments from both new and existing North Slope operators. One very large development is in its planning stages currently: the Willow project in the National Petroleum Reserve-Alaska proposed by ConocoPhillips Alaska.
ConocoPhillips, including the companies it acquired along the way, is no stranger to operating on Alaska’s North Slope. It has safely developed and operated fields for over 40 years, including Alpine, GMT-1 and GMT-2, Kuparuk and Prudhoe Bay. Its successes on the North Slope of Alaska have translated into jobs, incomes, government revenues and prosperity.
Currently, the federal Bureau of Land Management is collecting public input on the project. I strongly urge you to email your comments to BLM_AK_Willow_
ConocoPhillips has supported Alaskans for decades, and we should show them support by returning the favor. More information is available at the BLM.gov website.
