State of Alaska
Establishment of Authority
The Alaska Natural Gas Development Authority (ANGDA) was created by the People
of Alaska through a 2002 General Election Ballot Initiative and is a public
corporation (much like the Permanent Fund or Alaska Railroad). ANGDA is
focused on getting North Slope natural gas to Alaskan communities as well as
identifying feasible LNG opportunities for the State of Alaska. With the
support of the Legislature and the Administration, ANGDA started work in 2003
within the Alaska Department of Revenue.
Alaska Statute 41.41 contains the law for the establishment and
functioning of the authority.
ANGDA Mission Statement
Develop a natural gas pipeline from Prudhoe Bay to tidewater on Prince William
Sound and a spur line to the gas distribution grid in Southcentral, Alaska
