The State of Alaska should concentrate its efforts on a liquefied natural gas line through Southcentral and it shouldn’t involve TransCanada, former Alaska Governor Frank Murkowski said during a Juneau Chamber of Commerce luncheon Thursday.
TransCanada is working with ExxonMobil, BP and ConocoPhillips on the large capacity gas line project created under the Alaska Gasline Inducement Act. TransCanada and ExxonMobil were the original partners under AGIA, which included $500 million in state funding to advance the pipeline originally planned to reach Alberta.
