Alaska Governor Sarah Palin wrapped up two days of meetings with potential Alaska gas pipeline project sponsors on Wednesday - meetings she described as positive and productive.
"Sitting down one-on-one with potential project sponsors proved an excellent opportunity to not only gauge the number of parties interested in getting our natural gas to market, but also how they propose to do it," said Governor Palin.

"The scenarios are endless," said Palin. "That's why these meetings are so important. One of the themes that surfaced several times over the last two days was the appreciation from potential project sponsors that their views on a gas pipeline project were actually being considered."
Over the next few weeks Governor Palin and her gas team will go over, in detail, the information put forward by potential project sponsors.

In it, Governor Palin will outline several key requirements for a natural gas pipeline project.
