Sen. Murkowski Commits to Getting Alaska’s Natural Gas to Market

WASHINGTON, D.C. – U.S. Sen. Lisa Murkowski, R-Alaska, appeared on the energy news program Platts Energy Week on Sunday to discuss the energy agenda President Obama laid out in his State of the Union speech last week. During the interview, Murkowski expressed her commitment to moving Alaska’s “enormous amounts of conventional national gas” to market.

“I am committed to moving Alaska’s natural gas to market. Our market may not be in the Lower 48. It may be an export market,” Murkowski said. “I’m very committed to making sure that Alaskans gain access to our gas as well. We’re paying some of the highest energy costs of anybody in the entire country.”
