“News that BP and ConocoPhillips are teaming up to build a natural gas pipeline in Alaska is a positive and important development. Bringing the vast reserves of natural gas that are stranded on the North Slope to market will yield huge benefits to our nation’s energy security.  In addition, as the largest private construction project ever in North America, the pipeline will provide great economic stimulus by creating thousands of jobs and business opportunities in the U.S. and Canada.  It will help the U.S. meet its growing energy needs, and it will reduce dependence on foreign sources in the future.”
