Northern Gas Pipelines: Please scroll down for August 2008 news

8-10-08.  CNN Money, By Cassandra Sweet and Isabel Ordonez, DOW JONES NEWSWIRES - As the race to build a natural gas pipeline from Alaska heats up, U.S. oil major ConocoPhillips (COP) said Friday it hopes to win over Exxon Mobil Corp. (XOM), which controls most of the gas reserves there.     *     AKSYRIN Blog on recent Hal Kvisle statements.

8-9-08.  FDNM (AP), by Steve Quinn.  Alaskans are $1200 richer with 'Resource Rebate".    *    Dave Harbour editorial, defining 'rebate'.  *     VOT rebate editorial.    *    See yesterday's Charlie Rose interview of John Hofmeister, one of America's leading energy spokesmen.  Thanks to David Batt, CEA -Florida, for bringing this matter to our attention, since Arctic natural resources projects in general need greater public understanding and acceptance in order to provide the supply relief the market so desperately requires.  -dh

8-8-08. VOTANOTHER ITEM from the Globe and Mail interview with TransCanada CEO Hal Kvisle got lost in the smoke and steam resulting from Kvisle's comment that "nothing goes ahead until Exxon is happy with it."  Kvisle also suggested in an interview last Sunday with the Toronto-based newspaper that Denali and TransCanada are likely to join forces sometime in the next two years.  At least that is the apparent implication of his statement that it's unlikely more than one open season will be held in 2010. "This is not about TransCanada dreaming up the project we think will work," he said.  "It's about the five key parties getting together and crafting something here." The five parties are apparently the three big producers, TransCanada and the state of Alaska.    

8-7-08.  The Cattle Network SAN FRANCISCO (Dow Jones)--Although two pipelines are being proposed to ship natural gas from Alaska's North Slope to markets in the lower 48 states and Canada, only one is likely to get built, a state official said Monday.     *     CNN MoneySAN FRANCISCO -(Dow Jones)- Exxon Mobil Corp. (XOM) said Thursday it's ready to work with the Alaskan government and three companies competing to build a natural gas pipeline in the state, even as a dispute over leases revoked in 2006 looms in the background.      *     John Hofmeister, the recently retired president of Shell Oil, will be on the Glenn Beck TV show tomorrow night (Friday, Aug 8) for a full hour (7 & 9 pm EDT) on the CNN Headline News channel. You can now go on line at and sign up to receive notices from his new organization once it is up and fully running. If you have never listened to Hofmeister tell it like it is, you need to catch him whenever you can. (From David Batt, CEA -Florida).

8-2-08.  Calgary Herald.  Jon Harding.  Calgary-based TransCanada Corp. has stepped over a last political hurdle in Alaska, where the state's Senate approved a plan Friday for Canada's largest pipeline company to build a 2,500-kilometre natural gas pipeline from the top of Alaska to Alberta.

8-1-08.  ADN, by Wesley LoyJUNEAU -- Gov. Sarah Palin's natural gas pipeline license won final legislative approval Friday, and an executive for the Canadian energy company that will hold the license said his firm aims to start work right away.... "We do business with those folks each and every day," Tony Palmer said. BP already is the biggest gas customer on TransCanada's North American pipeline network, he said, and Conoco and Exxon also are big shippers.     *      Editorial Comment:  It is interesting that this morning there is no news of the TransCanada victory in the Whitehorse Star, Calgary Herald, CBC or Globe and Mail.  -dh (P.S.  if I'm wrong readers will let me know.)

7-31-08 ADN (AP), by Steve Quinn JUNEAU -- The Alaska Senate is down to its final days of the second special session to decide whether it will support or reject a state license for a natural gas pipeline project designed to unlock 4.5 billion cubic feet of North Slope reserves daily.     *     Dave Harbour letter to Senators: Compare TSM to AGIA.     *     Representative Bob LynnFew votes on controversial issues are easy, and the gas pipeline vote was controversial for every legislator, however they voted. I’ve responded by email to several constituents who asked why I vote as I did. As their representative in the legislature they deserved an answer. One of my mottos is, “The better the communication, the better the representation.” I thought I would turn some of my response to constituents into this Blog, for others who may be interested.
