This article reports that a milestone draft agreement for construction of a natural-gas pipeline from the North Slope to the lower 48 states will hinge upon revisions to Alaska's oil and gas production tax now in hearings in the legislature. Experts see many hurdles still to be cleared, including escalation in the $20-billion estimate announced in 2001. Governor Frank H. Murkowsld on February 22, 2006 introduced the legislation after announcing that the state and three oil and gas producers had reached agreement on a pipeline contract. Plans envision a 52-in. diameter buried steel pipeline nearly 3,600 miles long following the right-of-way of the Trans-Alaska Pipeline System from Prudhoe Bay to Fairbanks, Alaska, and following the Alaska Highway from there to central Alberta.
