Investing in Alaska
The Alaska LNG Project would be the single largest infrastructure investment in Alaska’s history. The project has the potential to create between 9,000 and 15,000 jobs for design and construction plus approximately 1,000 jobs for long-term operations. These numbers do not reflect the multiplier effect of oil and gas industry employment in the state. Recent economic impact studies have demonstrated that for each primary company direct job, 20 jobs are generated in the Alaska economy.
In addition to generating billions of dollars in revenue for Alaska, Alaska LNG will provide access to natural gas for Alaskans.
Providing a market for Alaska’s natural gas may also spur further exploration from the North Slope to southcentral Alaska, leading to more industry activity in the state. This activity would provide more opportunity for new players and employment in Alaska’s energy industry.
