The Alaska Department of Natural Resources‘ (DNR) Division of Oil and Gas is soliciting proposals for a contractor or contractors to assist DNR in characterizing and developing alternatives to advance a North Slope liquefied natural gas (LNG) project. The study is intended to help the state stay abreast of risks and opportunities of the project and how they are influenced by world events. DNR said it hopes to gain an understanding of how its policies toward the disposition of its royalty share of North Slope natural gas may contribute to the success of the project. DNR said it anticipates that the contractor(s) will assemble a team of experts with various appropriate backgrounds. A pre-proposal conference will be held at 1:30 p.m. local time on Tuesday, May 17 in the offices of the Division of Oil and Gas in Anchorage. Prospective contractors are encouraged to attend in person or make prior arrangements to call via teleconference by contacting Marlys Hagen at (907) 269-8666. Proposals must be received by May 20 at the DNR offices.
