The Governor of Alaska, Michael J. Dunleavy, has announced several changes and appointments to the seven-member board of directors governing Alaska Gasline Development Corp. (AGDC).

According to the statement, Department of Labor Commissioner Tamika Ledbetter and Department of Environmental Conservation Commissioner Jason Brune, have been selected to serve as State of Alaska department-level appointees to the AGDC board. Doug Smith and Dan Coffey, both of Anchorage, meanwhile, were also appointed as replacements for outgoing board members Hugh Short of Girdwood and Joey Merrick of Eagle River. According to the statement, Short and Merrick were both notified of their dismissal from the board on 7 January.

Dunleavy said: “Alaskans have long focused on the benefits of reduced energy costs, bringing our rich energy resources to market and monetising our North Slope gas. Today’s announcement continues those goals, while putting in place the personnel to make diligent review of the project. AGDC is tasked with a very complex mission – and I look forward to seeing how best the State can assist in moving a project forward.

“Each one of our appointees bring a wealth of knowledge and experience to table, including in areas of resource development, labour and workforce, regulatory issues and oversight, and I look forward to working closely with them in the future.”

The new board members will join AGDC board members Dave Cruz of Palmer, David Wight of Anchorage, and Warren Christian of North Pole.
