Dan Sullivan on Energy & Oil

 

 


Climate change is both threat and benefit to Alaska

Q: Consider human-caused climate change a serious threat?

Dan Sullivan: Mixed. Unclear if human-caused. Both threat and benefit. "Climate change in Alaska is opening up opportunities": more fishing, commerce and shipping as sea ice recedes. But melting permafrost harms roads.

Al Gross: Yes. "With a background in science, I know what a serious threat climate change is to the state of Alaska, where we are literally losing villages to the ocean."

Against any ban on hydrocarbon production

Q: Opinion of drilling ban?

Dan Sullivan: Against any ban on hydrocarbon production. Asked Trump to pressure financial institutions benefiting from CARES Act to keep "investing in U.S. coal" and oil and gas development. Strong supporter of Arctic National Wildlife Refuge drilling.

Al Gross: "Enormous potential to develop wind, hydroelectric, solar, and tidal power." Supports re-entering the Paris Climate Agreement. Does support ANWR drilling "in an environmentally safe way."

Create an enduring energy and economic renaissance

Increase oil production & make state tax world-competitive

The Parnell administration is implementing a comprehensive strategy to turn around our production decline by: ensuring efficient, timely permitting; aggressively promoting investment, drilling, and the vast resources on the North Slope; and making Alaska competitive for oil and gas investment. The cornerstone of this effort was the passage of Senate Bill 21, which ties tax benefits to increased production and makes Alaska's tax regime competitive with others around the world.

By contrast, those supporting the status quo have not presented a serious, workable plan to increase oil production. Keeping ACES would undermine that objective: it gives out enormous tax credits and cash payments-- estimated to exceed $1 billion next year--to companies that have not committed to producing any oil.
