A low-profile state commission most Alaskans have never heard of helps keep the oil industry safe. Only rarely does the Alaska Oil and Gas Conservation Commission get into the mainstream news, and that’s a good thing according to its three commissioners.
If the AOGCC weren’t doing its job there might be a lot more news, of the unwelcome kind.
The three commissioners appointed to the commission, all long-time members and with extensive prior experience in industry, are Cathy Foerster, currently the chair; Dan Seamount and John Norman.
