520 |a This report provides a brief history and review of the proposed Alaska Natural Gas Transportation System. It also discusses five main issues and presents recommendations. (It does not cover technical aspects of construction as alluded to in the title.) Bayer believes the reasons for the special status of the Alaska Natural Gas Transportation System (ANGTS) are, in hindsight, incorrect. The recommendations include repealing ANGTA, terminating agreements with Canada, and shutting down the Office of the Federal Inspector.

The Prudhoe Bay producers have long-term plans to use the natural gas to enhance oil recovery -- There is far more natural gas in Canada readily available to U.S. markets than previously thought -- The marketplace will not support ANGTS in the foreseeable future -- ANGTS faces competition for North Slope gas from another natural gas project -- The ANGTS special legal status is an anachronism -- Conclusions -- Recommendations -- Discussion -- Appendices: [Four maps] -- Comparision of capital costs for Prudhoe Bay gas -- [Letter to James D. Watkins from Lodwrick M. Cook (Chairman of ARCO), July 23, 1991] -- [U.S. and Canadian institutional outlines of laws, agreements, plans, orders, regulations, and programs].
