The Weekly Top 3 (7.25.2022)

Some 2023 #akleg session fiscal issues already are emerging, WoodMac classifies the North Slope as a “disadvantaged” oil basin and some add’l good news on Conoco’s Willow project.

Welcome to The Weekly Top 3 — our look at the top 3 things on our mind here at Alaskans for Sustainable Budgets — for the week of July 25, 2022.

The Weekly Top 3 is a regular weekly segment on The Michael Dukes Show. The Show broadcasts on Facebook and YouTubeLive as well as via streaming audio from the Show’s website weekdays from 6–8am. I join Michael weekly in the first hour of Tuesday’s show, from 6:25–7am, for a discussion between the two of us about our three issues.

This week our Top 3 issues are these: 1) we focus on some fiscal issues that some are already trying to move front and center for the 2023 legislative session (1:56), 2) we discuss a new report from Wood MacKenzie on what it will take to be an energy “super basin” in the coming years and where they see Alaska headed in that context (21:21), and 3) we focus on some additional good news about Conoco’s Willow project (28:29).

The segment is at the YouTube clip above. For those that prefer the audio version, it is available both on our Spotify and Soundcloud pages. For this and other complete podcasts of The Michael Dukes Show, go to the Show’s Soundcloud page here.
