Governor considers state ownership of LNG plant

- FAIRBANKS, Alaska (AP) - A state official says Governor Sean Parnell is considering state ownership of a gas liquefaction plant on the North Slope. Gene Therriault  deputy director of the Alaska Energy Authority, says a state-owned liquefaction plant makes sense for Alaska because a wide array of customers could potentially use the natural gas and propane coming from the plant. According to the Fairbanks Daily News-Miner, Therriault says the plant could process natural gas from multiple oil companies and sell it to a wide group of buyers. Therriault made his remarks Monday during a meeting in Fairbanks of the Lowell Group, a group of Interior residents who meet every week to discuss community issues.
