Support Armstrong’s Nanushuk Development Project!

Support Armstrong’s Nanushuk Development Project!

Your support is needed for Armstong’s Nanushuk Development Project on the North Slope. Located southeast of the Colville River on Alaska’s North Slope, the project would safely produce over a billion barrels of recoverable oil from a straightforward and conventional reservoir. Some points to mention in your comments: Armstrong has been one of the largest oil and gas explorers on the North Slope since acquiring leases in 2001. Alongside partners, they have drilled 30 exploration wells in Alaska since 2003. Armstrong’s Nanushuk project may be the largest North Slope discovery since Kuparuk. The Trans Alaska Pipeline System (TAPS) is only about a quarter full.  Nanushuk’s anticipated production of 120,000 barrels per a day would extend the useful life of TAPS and all associated downstream assets, including tankers and storage facilities in Valdez. The net economic effect of the Nanushuk project would be overwhelmingly positive with production generating billions of dollars in local, state and federal revenues. Nanushuk would generate approximately 1,000 construction jobs and up to 200 jobs in drilling. Armstrong continues to create hundreds of jobs through ice road and pad construction, catering, and well servicing and drilling work from its exploration work over the last 16 years. Armstrong and its contractors have been diligently working through the EIS process since June of 2015. Click here to view the draft Environmental Impact Statement. Click here to make a comment...

Maynard V. Tapp 6/6/47 – 9/12/17

Alaska lost a wonderful man with the passing of Maynard Tapp on September 12, 2017. Maynard was a beloved and faithful member of the Alliance Board of Directors, being the first to attain Emeriti status without having served as President of the Board. His generosity and sense of humor will be fondly remembered by the Board and staff of the Alliance. More from Maynard’s colleagues at Hawk: Maynard founded Hawk in 1985 and was a prominent figure in the Alaskan business community. His tireless support of the Alaska oil, gas and energy industry coupled with his passion for community engagement will be difficult to replace. At his core, Maynard was a people person – helping hundreds secure employment over the course of his career. His genuine concern for the well-being of everyone he met – employees, clients, suppliers, and colleagues – was legendary. Maynard was a good friend and a caring and ethical business partner.  We will miss his smile and wise counsel. A memorial service is planned for 3:00 PM on October 15th at the Wendy Williamson Auditorium on the campus of University of Alaska Anchorage (UAA).  Please refer to the obituary for additional...
