Industry Brief

A trio of Alaska state senators recently introduced legislation that would extend a corporate income tax break to the operator of a natural gas-to-liquids (GTL) plant, should one be built, to liquefy North Slope gas production for shipment to Lower 48 and/or overseas markets. GTLs could be shipped on the Trans-Alaska Pipeline in combination with crude or separately. The bill (SB 109) recently had its first reading in the senate's Resources Committee. Sen. Lesil McGuire (R-Anchorage) introduced the legislation; Sens. Tom Wagoner (R-Kenai) and Bill Wielechowski (D-Anchorage) are co-sponsors.
