ANWR in the news.
In other ANWR news, federal officials are considering opening thousands of acres of the North Slope of Alaska to oil and gas drillers. This would reverse the Clinton-era closures that environmental groups say are vital for protecting rich stocks of migratory water fowl and other wildlife.
In response to the country's need for oil and gas, the Alaska director for the U.S. Bureau of Land Management has decided to lease the acreage, designated as a petroleum reserve, in the northeast corner of the National Petroleum Reserve-Alaska as soon as July. Government geologists believe the reserve's northeast corner might contain more than 2 billion barrels of oil and 3.4 trillion cubic feet of natural gas.
