Senate panel to hold hearings on in-state line

Posted: August 3, 2011 - 7:00am  |  Updated: August 3, 2011 - 8:03am

A legislative committee is planning to hold hearings this month on an in-state natural gas pipeline.

The Senate Resources Committee is scheduled to meet Aug. 15-17 to discuss plans for the proposed in-state line. The tentative line-up includes the president of the Alaska Gasline Development Corp., which recently released a report outlining an in-state project. It also includes an official with TransCanada Corp., which is pursuing a major pipeline project that would carry gas from Alaska’s North Slope to North America markets.

This is the first formal committee hearing on the in-state line and comes as the state weighs its options both for commercializing gas and meeting the energy demands of Alaskans.

Testimony begins at 9 a.m. each day. The hearings will be streamed online at http://alaskalegislature.tv, or people in the central peninsula area can go to the Kenai Legislative Information Office to hear the testimony and discussion electronically. The Kenai LIO is at 145 Main St Lp #217, in Kenai. To confirm, call the office at 283-2030 or email Kenai_LIO@legis.state.ak.us.
