PRN: VP Pence Talks LNG in Alaska

Vice President Mike Pence stopped in Anchorage for a refueling stop on his way to Korea and met Alaska Gov. Bill Walker and Alaska Gasline Development Corp. (AGDC) president Keith Meyer. According to AGDC: “We had an excellent briefing and discussion with [the VP] about the Alaska LNG project… the largest [U.S.] energy export project and [one that] will help fortify the nation’s ability to export LNG to the Asia-Pacific region. “Our meeting was a perfect precursor to [his] trip to Asia,” said Meyer. Over the coming days, Pence will meet with leaders in South Korea as well as Japan—two primary markets for Alaska LNG. Trade partnerships will be a primary discussion topic. “Vice President Pence is the latest in a string of recent high-profile government officials to express interest in the Alaska LNG project. Last week, (April 7), Chinese President Xi Jinping, returning to Beijing after meeting with President Trump, visited Anchorage where he met with Walker and Meyer. A significant point of discussion between the three leaders was the Alaska LNG project and how Alaska and China are well positioned for a long-term LNG trading relationship.” (All quotes are from the AGDC news release).
