Interior Sec. Signs Order on AK Energy

Interior Secretary Ryan Zinke today signed a Secretarial Order directing the review and revision of the management plan for the National Petroleum Reserve-Alaska and the updating of assessments of undiscovered technically recoverable oil and natural gas resources in Alaska’s North Slope, including in the NPR-A and 1002 area of the Arctic National Wildlife Refuge.

Sec. Zinke said in part that the NPR-A “serves a critical role in both our energy and national security,” adding that “using this land for its original intent will create good paying jobs and revenue for our Northern-most city and strengthen our energy and national security.”
