|Alaska signs agreement that could provide financing options for mega natural gas project|
September 11, 2013
In the wake of criticism about Gov. Sean Parnell's willingness to work with a Japanese group interested in buying Alaska's natural gas, state officials announced on Wednesday that the state has signed a memorandum of understanding with a Japanese bank known as a leading financier of liquefied natural gas projects.
The agreement with the Japanese Bank for International Cooperation was signed in Tokyo yesterday, when it was Tuesday in Alaska, by Natural Resources Commissioner Dan Sullivan and the bank's managing director, Koichi Yajima.
