Sarah Palin: Alaska Steps Forward Towards Energy Security

Posted by Ron Devito on February 11, 2010

Following is the complete transcript of Gov. Palin’s Facebook Note, regarding Exxon-Mobil’s Pt. Thomson well reaching a depth of 16,000 feet. News of that accomplishment is contained within her Note:

Congratulations are due Exxon and the State of Alaska’s Department of Natural Resources for completing the first development well at Point Thomson in northern Alaska. This is a huge field full of domestic crude, and it’s time to drill for it!

This week we’ve witnessed great progress toward more energy security for Alaska and our entire nation. What began as hefty trucks and hard working men and women heading up an ice road last year, to the commencement of drilling at Point Thomson, this progress has finally led to Exxon’s announcement today of completion of its first development well to produce oil and gas. Our “tough stance” with big oil and perseverance in insisting that Alaska’s resources be developed instead of warehoused while foreign countries are busy developing their oil and gas reserves has paid off to the benefit of everyone involved.

Drill here, drill now… energy independence is a national security issue that can’t be ignored any longer.

– Sarah Palin

Background:

The tough stance Gov. Palin spoke about related to the State of Alaska enforcing lease contracts with Exxon-Mobil. On February 19, 2009, ExxonMobil returned eight unexplored land leases in the Point Thompson area to the State of Alaska’s Department of National Resources (DNR). The company had also paid a $20 million fine for failing to develop these leases. In our commentary that day, we wrote,

“Oil companies often lease land on which to drill, but never actually drill….When a large corporation flouts the laws of a state, this is an area that’s open for all manner of corruption. How tempting it could have been for the state or various elements within Governor Palin’s administration to look the other way in exchange for some favor from the company or some lobbyists. That did not happen under her watch. Instead, the company was forced to honor its agreement and consequently is now moving forward on honoring other agreements.”

On May 8, 2009, as Governor Palin delineated above, Exxon-Mobil began drilling its Pt. Thomson well at 0230 local time. Governor Palin attended a luncheon on June 3, 2009 to express her appreciation to Exxon-Mobil for moving forward with the project.

Sarah Palin Showing Barack Obama And The Democrats How It Is Done (Again)

Posted by Gary P Jackson on February 11, 2010

Just a day after helping expose yet another scandal in the Obama administration, one where Obama’s Energy Department has been suppressing the people’s desire for more energy exploration in America, Sarah Palin announces the success of an oil exploration initiative she put in place.

As most know, some oil companies have leased land but are not exploring it, for any number of reasons. One of those leases was Point Thompson, held by Exxon-Mobil. After some 30 years of dithering, Exxon-Mobil has now drilled it’s first developmental well.

From Sarah:

Alaska Steps Forward Towards Energy Security

Congratulations are due Exxon and the State of Alaska’s Department of Natural Resources for completing the first development well at Point Thomson in northern Alaska. This is a huge field full of domestic crude, and it’s time to drill for it!

This week we’ve witnessed great progress toward more energy security for Alaska and our entire nation.

– Sarah Palin

Now this didn’t happen over night. It took a lot of hard work and a tough stance by then Governor Palin to force action at Point Thompson. Sarah played hardball with Exxon-Mobil. Threatened to take their lease and bid it to some other company.

When Sarah threatened to yank Exxon-Mobil’s Point Thompson lease, the world’s largest oil company threatened court action. Sarah laughed at them and told ‘em to go ahead, she knew the way to the courthouse too!

This folks, is how you get things done. Our current president doesn’t get it. Energy independence and national security go hand and hand.

Sarah Palin gets it!
