Another big Alaska fossil fuel project gets Biden team’s blessing

Two years ago, a multibillion-dollar natural gas export project planned for Alaska appeared all but dead, the victim of tough economics and Donald Trump’s trade wars.

But now it’s got fresh momentum — thanks in part to Democrats’ massive climate bill and a push by members of the Biden administration.

Alaska LNG, a $40 billion project proposed for the state’s south coast, would be the second major fossil fuel proposal in the state to have stalled under the Trump administration only to be resuscitated under President Joe Biden.
