DNR says Cassandra Energy project is not in state’s best interest

Alaska Department of Natural Resources officials have reversed their preliminary decision on the proposed Cassandra Energy Corporation’s Gulf of Alaska oil and gas exploration permit application, finding that issuing a permit is not in the best interests of the state.“In these trying times it is extraordinary to receive such a wise decision from Alaska's Department of Natural Resources Division of Oil and Gas,” said Carol Hoover, executive director of the Eyak Preservation Council. “The city of Cordova, the Cordova community, the fisherman, all spoke up and their voices were heard. As was their respect for all of the wild salmon and creatures that thrive in these pristine wild watersheds.”
