Alaska State Sen. Micciche, employed by Conoco Phillips, says he has no conflict of interest

As state officials described what's known about Cook Inlet gas reserves and exploration to the Senate Resources Committee on Monday, there was one senator at the hearing with particular knowledge and concern about the situation.

"We've got a supply issue and the public needs to understand it," freshman Sen. Peter Micciche, R-Soldotna, told Department of Natural Resources Commissioner Dan Sullivan.

For the public in Southcentral Alaska, the supply issue could mean that keeping their houses warm next year, or the year after, will require them to burn some natural gas from a place other than Cook Inlet.

For Micciche, it could mean the plant at which he's superintendent -- the Conoco Phillips liquefied natural gas plant in Kenai -- never exports gas again. The plant, the first of its kind in the United States, relies on a surplus of Alaska gas for shipment to Asia.

1. quote should read....

 

"look the public needs to understand, if Sean Parnell gets the state to pay for more gas lines, we can be shipping more gas to Asia out of my plant in Kenai, because Japan has been paying double what everyone else will ever since the nuke plant incident in Fukishima, can you say Cha Ching!"
