A “BULLET LINE”?

Congratulations to Governor Palin and her administration from helping broker the beginning of a partnership between Enstar Gas, the State of Alaska, and the Alaska Gas Development Authority (ANGDA) to build a “bullet line” to bring much needed and affordable gas to our neighbors in Fairbanks, the Railbelt, and all of south central Alaska.

It’s very early in the process, and much could go wrong, but the “good news” an attempt is being made to address Alaska’s in-state gas needs sooner than later. Our neighbors are hurting from the high cost of gas.

According go the governor’s press-release, construction could begin within three years, with delivery to customers within five years. That would be extremely good news to consumers who need gas for heating their homes and cooking their food. This schedule could also provide jobs for Alaskans, before jobs are available on the big pipeline to the Lower 48. Keep your fingers crossed, that politics don’t get in the way of any good project - the bullet line or the big pipeline.
