17 billionth barrel flows down Alaska pipeline

Jul 21, 2014 -- 12:00pm
- JUNEAU, Alaska (AP) - The trans-Alaska pipeline has moved its 17 billionth barrel of oil. The operator of the 37-year-old pipeline, Alyeska Pipeline Service Co., announced the milestone Monday. It has been nearly five years since the 16 billionth barrel flowed down the line, in October 2009. The 800-mile pipeline is the economic lifeblood of the state, which relies heavily on oil revenues to run. The pipeline runs from the prodigious North Slope to Valdez, from where tankers are shipped. Alyeska says the pipeline has generated about $180 billion in state revenue. Oil flowing through the line has been on a downward trend since reaching a peak of 2.1 million barrels a day in the late 1980s.
 

Limo's 17 occupants uninjured in drive-by shooting

Jul 21, 2014 -- 11:45am
- ANCHORAGE, Alaska (AP) - Anchorage police say there's been no reports of injuries after more than 30 rounds were fired at a limousine bus containing 17 people. Police say 10 rounds hit the limo during the early Sunday morning shooting in Midtown Anchorage. All but one of the limo's occupants fled the scene when the bus stopped.  The remaining witness told officers the limo's occupants had spent about two hours earlier in the evening at Al's Alaskan Inn. The witness wasn't aware of any altercations at the nightclub and said she didn't know why anyone would shoot at them. Everyone inside ducked down when the shooting started. Police collected more than 30 shell casings from four different guns from the shooting scene near 47th Avenue and Arctic Boulevard.
 

Companies file export application for Alaska LNG

Jul 21, 2014 -- 11:30am
- JUNEAU, Alaska (AP) - The companies pursuing a major liquefied natural gas project in Alaska have applied for an export license with the U.S. Department of Energy. The application requests authorization to export up to 20 million metric tons of liquefied natural gas a year for 30 years. Participants in the project include BP, ConocoPhillips, ExxonMobil Corp., TransCanada Corp. and the Alaska Gasline Development Corp., or AGDC. TransCanada owns the state's interest in the pipeline and gas treatment plant, with the state having an option to buy some of that back as the project progresses. AGDC holds the state's interests in liquefaction facilities. 

High water sinks Fairbanks regatta

Jul 21, 2014 -- 11:15am
- FAIRBANK, Alaska (AP) - High water forced the cancellation of the Red Green Regatta in Fairbanks over the weekend. Participants had been warned last week to plan for less clearance under bridges than in the past and to consider adjustments for tall boats. The main concern was with the low hang of the Veterans Memorial Bridge, which only allowed for several feet of clearance in the days leading to Sunday's scheduled regatta. The event is sponsored by public broadcasting station KUAC. Assistant general manager Gretchen Gordon said organizers went over their options, including possibly changing the route or pushing the regatta back. In the end, the Fairbanks Daily News-Miner reports (http://bit.ly/1nb08sw) the event was moved off the water, and into a parking lot, where entries were judged.

 

 

Anchorage mulls fence regs to protect moose

Jul 21, 2014 -- 11:00am
- ANCHORAGE, Alaska (AP) - Municipal officials in Alaska's largest city are considering outlawing gothic style metal fences after five moose were gored to death in recent years. The Alaska Dispatch News reports the Anchorage Assembly will conduct a public hearing Aug. 5 to consider regulating metal palisade fences with spiked pointed tips. The fences stand between 4- and 6-feet and are usually found around private residences for both security and aesthetic reasons. But state wildlife biologists say moose get caught up, or gored by the tips when they try to jump over them. The proposal would outlaw such fences shorter than 9 feet unless the tips are removed or the spikes capped.
 

Crews work on Bethel harbor project

Jul 21, 2014 -- 10:45am
- BETHEL, Alaska (AP) - Construction crews are working on an environmental protection project at the Bethel small boat harbor. KYUK reports that crews are sloping the banks of the harbor and adding armor rock to protect it in the future. Bethel port director Pete Williams says embankments have sloughed off into the harbor, causing it to get rather shallow. This summer's state-funded, $3.7 million work is among the final steps of a multi-year dredging and harbor improvement project. The work will involve reinforcement of the entrance channel. Crews also will be working on stabilizing the north and south sides of the harbor, and they will finish with the west side. The work is slated for completion in mid-September.
