You expect this turns out well? One more rat-hole to pee hundreds of millions of dollars down. So who is smarter about oil/gas development project investments, four highly experienced world oil companies, or the dip'sticks that pretend to have a clue about managing Alaska? Gee'wizz I wonder why four oil companies are "Backing away" from the deal, Hmmmm guess they are just real stupid, you'think.
So the State takes over the risk, and trusts the oil companies to deliver gas at a "FAIR PRICE", Like the State has such an outstanding history of being smarter than the oil companies. I am not trashing the oil companies, I am trashing the fools who manage Alaska's money and resources.
