New Gas & New Jobs

The Alaska Dispatch has this article by Amanda Coyne on the release of the Point Thomson EIS (LINK)(Point Thomson EIS Link).

There's no point in developing Point Thomson unless you believe in a future Alaska gas pipeline.

Follow the money - a producer (ExxonMobil) is spending real money with an expectation of a real return on investment.

Real jobs are being created too.  Check out "Careers" at Fluor.  Recent job postings mention Point Thomson by name.

According to this blog:

"Exxon continues to bring the latest technology to develop this field.
The field will process 200 million cubic feet of natural gas per day in order to produce approximately 10,000 barrels per day of liquid condensate into the Trans Alaska Pipeline System.
After processing, the natural gas will be recycled into the reservoir, making Thomson the highest-pressure gas cycling operation in the world."

Flour may be hiring for this condensate project.
