Alaska Gas Line Project Could Produce 12K Construction Jobs

Construction on the project could start as soon as 2019 with a five-year time frame

Plans are underway on a trans-Alaska gas line, which could bring up to 12,000 short-term construction jobs to Alaska, according to Alaska Gasline Development Corp. While definitive agreements on the deal are still in the works, the goal is to have finalized agreements in place by the end of 2018 and construction started by 2019.

Construction could take five years with peak employment at 12,000 jobs and then 1,000 full-time workers once the gas line is in service.
