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.
