Alaska's Thirty Billion Dollar Natural Gas Pipeline ("Palin's Pipeline") May be Delayed

The economy downturn has lowered the demand for natural gas and has caused a decrease in the price of gas. The State of Alaska may not have adequate amount of funds to begin construction. Energy consultant Pedro van Meurs was quoted as saying: “Current economic conditions are not good for the Alaska gas line, and I expect considerable delays in the initiation of its construction.”
