Stevens says AGIA pipeline a flop, calls for trans-Alaska gas pipeline

ANCHORAGE, Alaska - Former U.S. Sen. Ted Stevens says the AGIA pipeline plan has flopped and the state should put up billions to pay half the cost of an in-state natural gas pipeline project to Kenai.
It should also switch its support to the building of a trans-Alaska pipeline to Valdez that would export LNG to the Pacific Rim nations, Stevens told Anchorage businessmen at a Commonwealth North meeting on March 12.
“Let’s move ahead. We don’t need any more open seasons, we don’t need any more periods for analysis. We need an emphasis on getting the job done,” he said.
Stevens was among those in Alaska championing the idea of building a gas pipeline along the oil pipeline route to the coast.
