Is the North Slope seeing a resurgence in oil production? What about offshore? There’s a lot of industry excitement over promising new prospects, so what will it take to translate that into new oil flowing through the trans-Alaska Pipeline? And could lower per barrel oil prices cool off the hot talk? Looking at the possible oil industry renaissance is our discussion on the next Talk of Alaska.
