For more than 40 years, the state has tried, and failed, to bring natural gas from Alaska’s North Slope to market.
In all, there have been at least 10 different versions of the pipeline mega-project. And not one has come close to breaking ground.
This week, Alaska’s Energy Desk is examining some of the reasons why the state has struck out.
Check out the five-part series below:
- Alaska Republican Sen. Lisa Murkowski's roll call vote -- a no -- was barely picked up by the microphone, but it was heard loud and clear across the Capitol.
- Haines is getting ready for a weekend full of music, food and Ferris wheels. The 49th annual Southeast Alaska State Fair takes place Thursday through Sunday.
- Republican senators Susan Collins of Maine and Lisa Murkowski of Alaska broke with their party and opposed the Senate vote to move ahead on health care.
- A good Samaritan vessel and a Coast Guard aircrew rescued four fishermen Monday in Kodiak waters. The fishing vessel Grayling capsized in Kuprean of Strait near Raspberry Island, according to a Coast Guard news release, and the nearby Calista Marie came to their aid.
