The Flaw In The #LNG Codswallop (ctd)...The Dippers Wreck Alaska!


From Alaska Public Radio:

Last year, ConocoPhillips announced that it wanted to sell its liquefied natural gas plant on the Kenai Peninsula (in Alaska). The company hasn’t yet found a buyer. Now, a company spokesperson said it’s going to save expenses by mothballing the facility this fall.

It’s the last piece of infrastructure that ConocoPhillips owns in Cook Inlet. And they’re getting closer to shutting it down.

The Kenai LNG facility is up against a world market that’s awash in natural gas.

“Most people are fairly aware of the fact that worldwide the price of oil and gas has been low,” ConocoPhillips Senior Communications Specialist Amy Burnett said...


I guess that Murkowski woman did vote against separating tens of thousands of Alaskans from their health insurance.

So it must be all the socialists' fault all the time.

Tip O' The Toque to Jeff Melland on the Twittmachine.

Vaughn Palmer and Mike Smyth owe us some numbers and an explanation. What numbers did they have from their BC Liberal stablemates or anywhere else that showed the Petronas project was ever viable at any time?

They could start by chasing down Rich Coleman and asking him what specific numbers he said he had last October when he said they just need to be "tightened down". If he had the numbers then, he must have the (revised) numbers now. What are they? And since the gas glut has been getting gluttier since last fall, when did he know "tightening" wasn't possibly going to work?

If they can't do that, they have no business lecturing the citizens of BC on how the NDP killed off LNG in this province. And no business at all holding themselves out as credible journalists.

While they're pressing Coleman and his fellow BC Liberal MLAs for the answers, they might mention to them that petulantly crying from the rooftops that BC is now closed for business is not particularly helpful; nor is it accurate. It's just closed for business to BC Liberal cronyism.
