Stevens: Drop North Slope Gas Line Plans

Former Senator Ted Stevens made a rare public appearance in Anchorage today, calling for the state to drop its current plan for developing a gas line from the North Slope to the North American market. Speaking at a Commonwealth North lunch, he said demand for gas in the Lower 48 is falling off and the Asian market is much more promising. Stevens says the state should pursue a bullet line to Kenai. The gas would be liquefied at a plant there and then shipped to India, China, Japan and Korea.
