1.  Business and Labor*

  • Just a short note to say how excellent your web site is. Most informative and for management consultants, a wealth of information.  Keep up the good work.  Ron Gartshore - V.P. & General Manager - Nehtr'uh Development Group Inc. - Inuvik*
  • I read the summary of your Palmer CC address and can't agree more with what you've stated.  ...  Keep up the good work.”   *   I've been on Williams Arctic Team for over a year and have visited your site often, usually daily, because it's so useful. I must say you have the stamina and  determination of a glacier reporting transparently on most of the issues regarding energy development especially on the Slope and Delta.  It has to be disappointing that Congress didn't act this year, but I'm sure you won't give up. Thanks for all your effort in finding the big as well as the small news affecting the potential projects. My personal opinion is that an Alaska pipeline to the lower 48 presents too much risk to the majors and they have put it on the back burner because they have better projects with less risk.  Retired Williams Arctic Team Member, Hank Kolesnik.
  • Dave Harbour's Arctic Gas Pipeline web site is the definitive source for information and perspectives related to Northern gas pipeline development. The site is a key tool for anyone doing business in the region. Keep up the great work!  Rod Maier - Northern Gas Program Manager - Chevron Canada Resources*

  • I am a Teamster often working in the pipeline industry so I really enjoy your page.  Guenter Bouman - Parksville, B.C.*

  • I have been reading the Northern Gas Pipelines website for many months.  It is the best source of fast breaking news that I have found.  Unlike the many media outlets, Northern Gas Pipelines tells it like it is, not the way they would like to to be.  Please keep up the great work.  I read it almost every day.  Scott Thorson - President - Network Business Systems - Anchorage*

  • I appreciate the timely updates and links for additional information.  I read your reports regularly and really like the photos!  Mike Heatwole - Public Relations Manager  - Alyeska Pipeline Service Company - Anchorage*

  • I know I have complemented you in the past on a great web site but I wanted to again let you know how helpful the Northern Gas Pipelines news service and web site are.  There is absolutely no other source of unbiased information on the issues surrounding development of northern tier natural gas.  As a proponent of gas to liquids (GTL's), I especially appreciate your inclusion of other gas development proposals even if they do not require a new gas pipeline so that your readers know of all of the options.  I can't tell you how many people I know who rely heavily upon Northern Gas Pipelines to get the real story.  Both you and your co-sponsors should be congratulated for an exceptional job and service to the industry, the State of Alaska, Canada and the US.  Keep up the great work.  Dick Peterson - President - ANGTL Company - Anchorage*
  • I complement you again on the great service provided by the Northern Gas Pipelines web site.  Harvie Andre – Chairman and CEO - Arctigas Resources Ltd. – Calgary

  • The page is a great source of information....  Mike Kinch - Assistant Manager - Mitsui & Co. (Canada) Ltd.*
  • ... doing a great job with this website.  I often get requests for information from people who are unfamiliar with the gas pipeline issue and I always suggest that they check this website every day, as I do.  Rocco Ciancio - Communications Manager - Alaska Highway Pipeline Project*
  • I have really enjoyed Northern Gas Pipelines. You're providing a great service to the  industry and the State... not to mention NWT and YT. Keep up the great work!  Kevin Paylow - Market & Business Specialist - Halliburton Energy Services - Anchorage*
  • The last time we talked I was working on the Alaska Gas Producers Pipeline Team in Anchorage.  I've since moved back to Houston but am still involved with Alaska gas.  Your website is a big help and you do a great job.  Steve Riester - ExxonMobil Gas Marketing Company - Houston
  • The " has been of tremendous value to all of us at Enbridge.  We particularly value the timeliness of the information and the many reference or site linkages..., but of greatest benefit is the balanced and factual content of the reporting."  Wayne Sartore - Vice President of Northern Pipeline Development - Enbridge, Inc.
  • I wanted to give you some comments on your website - "great job - our project team always know the latest on Arctic gas pipeline issues after receiving what we call the "Dave Alert".  This is the e-mail notification you send out with breaking news.  Peter C. Thomas - Manager, Gas Pipeline - Williams Arctic Project Team*
  • I have heard much about your site over the past few weeks.  I often visit your site to get the latest update to northern pipeline issues.  I find it to be a great source for current information and discussion from a number of perspectives.   Tod Collard - Senior Environmental Specialist - Alaska Gas Producers Pipeline Team

2.  Media

  • “Since meeting you at the Inuvik Petroleum Show, I’ve been checking your website regularly. It has become one of my top sources for news on the North, particularly the political climate in Alaska. This information isn’t always reported in Calgary (at least not in the detail your site offers). The site helps me keep up to date on what is occurring between the 'big stories'. Keep up the great work, Dave!" – Kathleen Wilson, Oilweek, Calgary*

  • Thanks for including me with your Northern Gas Pipelines news. It is very informative and as an Alaskan, I can honestly say I am now aware of the pertinent issues affecting Alaska and it's future. Thanks to Dave and the Northern Gas Pipelines. Salamat po, Nez Danguilan - Producer, Fil-Am Showtime, Ch. 9 - Architect/EEO Special Emphasis Manager - Engineering Contract  - Services Section - Anchorage*

  • Your website is the most comprehensive collection of northern oil and gas and pipeline information, news, commentary and links I have seen. I strongly recommend it to anyone looking for information about northern oil and gas development in order to understand the issues facing northerners as they consider going ahead with resource development projects.  Sunny Munroe -  Editor - The Far North Oil & Gas Review - Yellowknife*

  • I check the Website at least weekly. I have found it very helpful, especially for getting the Canadian perspective, which often is overlooked in Alaska, particularly on the question of the over-the-top route. It’s something I check any time I’m doing an oil and gas story.  Bill McAllister - Alaska Capitol Bureau - Juneau Empire*

  • Northern News Services Limited, headquartered in Yellowknife, Northwest Territories, publishes five newspapers in eight editions serving communities across the NWT and Nunavut, Canada. Among those, the Deh Cho Drum in Fort Simpson and Inuvik Drum in Beaufort Delta, are uniquely situated in Canada's arctic and sub arctic oil patch. NNSL also publishes annual industry reports. We are the main print media outlet for Canada's North. NNSL has always closely covered oil and gas development in the North and the recent surge of activity has increased that coverage. But for the big picture from Houston to Anchorage, Chicago to Calgary, we go to the Northern Gas Pipelines web site. Breaking news in the oil world, a clearinghouse for media reports and even answering a journalist's hard questions is the web site's forte. The objective, timely and independent reporting provides a good critical balance for the often conflicting national and regional interests the pipeline proposals are generating. In my view, the Northern Gas Pipelines web site is simply a required resource for anyone following the oil and gas industry. Bruce Valpy - Managing Editor - Northern News Services Ltd. - Yellowknife*

  • You certainly grasped the culture vs. industry dichotomy I spoke of last week. There is no question that the politics driving the gas pipeline issue outside of the major producers are driven and sustained by the politics of culture not the politics of economics.  The initiation and success of Proposition 3 is a screaming testament to that.  Jim Kohler - Alaska Business Radio Network - Juneau

  • I always enjoyed your website--it was a great source of information and insight on a complex, multifaceted industry that speaks with many voicesI have to say it makes me a little sad one voice will be absent--although certainly not forgotten. Maureen Lorenzetti - Washington Editor
    Oil & Gas Journal

3.  U.S. Federal, State and Local Government

  • "I think you are doing a fine job in presenting balanced, unbiased views on issues of interest and importance to Alaskans, and many others."  Bill Wicker - Communications Director - U.S. Senate Energy Committee - Washington D.C.*
  • Thanks so much for keeping Alaskans informed about important oil & gas issues!  Fran Ulmer - Lieutenant Governor - State of Alaska
  • ...given the amount of research, news-following, writing, editing, posting and updating that is obvious you do... hats off to a true one-man news network!  Dan Saddler - Communications Director - Murkowski for Governor.
  • Congratulations!  You’ve done phenomenal work on the pipeline website.  Shirley Neff - former Chief Economist - U.S. Senate Energy Committee
  • I have been extremely pleased at the wealth of information Northern Gas Pipelines has provided.  I have generated over 2,000 pages of materials, downloaded from the many links your website offers.  I truly appreciate the quality and quantity of the content you have made available.  Northern Gas Pipelines has given me a number of insights into the issues of oil and gas in Alaska of which I previously had been unaware.  Hat's off to you for this excellent public resource.  Bill Popp - Oil & Gas Liaison - Kenai Peninsula Borough*
  • ...a professional, timely, and very informative site ... that I've often referred readers to when they need up-to-date information on gas issues affecting Alaska. ...  Keep up the good work.  Ken Erickson  - Majority Webmaster - Alaska Legislature's Majority Coalition - Juneau
  • "The best clearinghouse of information on arctic gasline development.  A must stop when researching any gasline issue." - Ken Freeman - Special Assistant for Oil and Gas Development to Governor Tony Knowles*
  • Great article and great job.  Best wishes.  Thanks for your work for Alaska.  Tony Knowles - Governor - State of Alaska

  • Let me just add my voice to the chorus.  Northern Gas Pipelines web site is an important  information source to me on a daily basis.  I have been impressed with the depth of coverage and understand the effort that obviously has gone into putting this product out.  Good luck in the future.  Chuck Logsdon - Petroleum Economist - State of Alaska*

  • Great job.  I'm not quite sure how you keep up with all the information in and out of Alaska, but you provide a Fantastic Work Product.  It is to the point, articulate and accurate!!    Thank you and keep up the good work!  Ken Lancaster - Member - Alaska House of Representatives - Kenai*

  • The Northern Gas Pipelines web-site is the most comprehensive, timely and accurate source of news and views on this important subject that I know. Absolutely indispensable.  Brian Davies - Member - 2002 Governor's Alaska Highway Natural Gas Pipeline Policy Council - Anchorage*

  • Somewhat feeling like we are well off the mainline for Oil and Gas Development and yet living right beside one of the larger energy potentials in Alaska and the world, Norton Basin/Bering Sea....   Northern Gas Pipelines has been of tremendous assistance for me to keep up with what is really happening.  It has kept my oil and gas sense up to speed as we grow closer to our neighbors on the west in Chukotka who have already begun to tap that Norton Basin/Bering Sea resource on the other side.  Thanks.  Keep it coming.  Mayor Leo B. Rasmussen - City of Nome*

4.  Canadian Federal, Provincial, Territorial and Local Government

  • …happy to assist you with your excellent (and most importantly, impartial) information service. Your site is quickly becoming recognized as the most comprehensive and complete source of unbiased and objective information on the proposed arctic pipeline developments. You would be pleased and surprised at how may times over the past 6 or so months that your website has been recommended to me either through personal contact or by speakers at a number of meetings across the NWT.  I recognize that in order to maintain the high standards of journalism you have already achieved on this website and in consideration of the ever higher expectations of us faithful readers - It's our duty to help you in your project where and when we can. I'm just happy to be of some service.  By way of an introduction - I'm a lifelong resident of Inuvik (other than some short stints in Alberta, to attend University or working in the patch, and two years in Norman Wells immediately following the expansion / pipeline project), I've also spent 10+ years in the petroleum industry both in exploration and production and I'm currently working as the Government of the NWT's point man for oil and gas related activity and initiatives in the Inuvik Region.  In closing I'd like to provide you with my contact information and an offer to assist you (or anyone else you know of - for that matter) if you ever have a need of any information on the goings on in the Beaufort / Delta. I don't profess to know everyone or everything that is going on over in this part if the NWT but I generally know who might know or I can help narrow a search.   T. Ian Butters  -  Regional Petroleum Advisor  -  Resources, Wildlife and Economic Development  -  Government of the NWT*

  • "I check your site daily because I have come to trust it as the best source for unbiased and up-to-date information on the ever changing world of arctic gas pipelines and related issues."    Peter Stulken - Trade Commissioner - International Trade Centre - Industry Canada - Calgary*

  • Thanks again for your assistance with the IPS....  Your website is very informative and professional; you have done a great job with it and we appreciate the extensive coverage of the IPS.  Honourable Peter Clarkson - Mayor - Inuvik, NWT*

  • Good luck Dave - I'm sure we'll be bumping into each other over the next few years.  Your website ... truly invaluable....  Don Dempster, Yukon Territory

  • Congratulations Mr. Harbour; well deserved!  Melody J. McLeod - Chair, Mackenzie Valley Land and Water Board

5.  Professional Firms

  • All the best of the Holiday Season to you Dave Harbour.   Having met you gives me a sense of connection, and the feeling that it would be appropriate to personally wish you warmest greetings of this season.  This past weekend we celebrated Winter Solstice and, in just two more days, it will be Christmas.  In such uncertain times, these celebrations remind us that there is still the possibility of new beginnings and the increase of light in our world. Thanks so much for all the news that you have made available through Northern Gas Pipelines over 2002.  Your web site is the source that many of us who check in regularly rely on more than any other.  You are providing an incredibly valuable information resource to the energy community and all those with northern interests.  Thanks again and best wishes for 2003.  Brian McCutcheon, Senior Consultant-Outcrop Communications Ltd.-Yellowknife (12-23-02)

  • Your web site has been very helpful in our marketing efforts on the gas pipeline project. We used information from your site to prepare our successful proposal to provide professional services to the gas study group. We also referred the study group personnel to the site who used it extensively. Keep up the good work.  Bob Bell - F. Robert Bell and Associates - Engineers and Land Surveyors - Anchorage*

  • I find (the website) an invaluable source of information and an up to date reference tool.  You provide a balanced perspective and perform a great service in bringing Alaskans, Northerners, Canadians and Americans closer through your website and I appreciate your efforts.  Many times I have appreciated receiving a News Flash about some recently announced event or statement.   Sometimes it is only as a result of your alerts that I learn of the event, and for that I am truly grateful.   I have also referred your website to a number of people in the legal and nonlegal communities.  I thank you for your efforts.  Charles W. Bois - (Vancouver) - MILLER THOMSON LLP - Barristers & Solicitors, Patent & Trade Mark Agents - (an Ontario Limited Liability Partnership)* 

  • This is a great and informative site.  I use it often.  Phil Brna  - Principal Environmental Scientist - MWH - Anchorage.

  • As you know, Purvin & Gertz is an international energy consulting firm that has done a lot of work related to Arctic gas developments in the last few years. I've been responsible for many of these efforts and need a quick, quality source of information to keep current. Your Northern Gas Pipelines website and daily emails provide this service in a stellar fashion. I also refer my colleagues, clients and journalists to your site for the same reasons. Congratulations on a job well done.  Roland George - Principal - Purvin & Gertz, Inc.*

  • ...thank you again for your most timely and informative postings. It never ceases to amaze me - your resourcefulness, your network, and your insightful, knowledgeable and unbiased  presentation of the 'news' integrated with the your view and opinions of the current progress (or not) of the northern gas development offers clarity where there is confusion.

  • My interest in northern gas pipelines has been inculcated in me from an early age. My father, Barry Noble of Noble Resource Management worked on the environmental and regulatory components of the first Mackenzie Valley route proposal (Williams Brothers). I am currently pursuing a B.A. in geography and political science at the University of Calgary and hope to become involved in the environmental and policy research/development aspects of the next pipeline proposal. I am currently working at IEG this summer, as I did the summer of 2001 and find it an excellent learning environment, especially as it is an aboriginal-owned environmental company with significant presence in the Canadian arctic. I visit the Northern Gas Pipelines site daily to keep informed primarily on the environmental, policy and stakeholder aspects of the process.  I find the website useful and insightful.  Rachel Noble - Inuvialuit Environmental and Geotechnical Inc. - Calgary

  • have a great website! It is part of my essential reading. The information you provide is accurate, timely, and useful.

  • We who have personal, property, and business ties to Alaska, are challenged to understand the potential for a gas pipeline in our planning.  Dave's site has it all, the economics and the politics, more thorough and up-to-date than any other source.  Val Rader-former Alaskan-Nashville

  • Your site is the only place I can go and get both current information and background. Keep up the good work. I visit it at least once a week.  David Reaume - Economist and Columnist, Anchorage Daily News - Seattle

6.  Academia

  • I would like to thank you very much for you willingness to come and speak to our club. I believe I speak for the entire club when I say that your presentation was enjoyable as well as educational. Your objective nature was also very appreciated.  I am honored to be a member of the Northern Gas Pipeline family.  Ben Ewing -  President - Resource Development Club - Robert Service High School - Anchorage.
  • Your web site is an essential resource for a thoughtful discussion on the options Alaskans face  when deciding how our natural gas resource will be developed.  Your web resource, perhaps more than any other,  has kept the Canadian perspective in front of us and insured that don't become too "provincial" in our view and forget we are part of a global natural gas market.  Day to day I have to say the alerts you have provided have been the most useful service you've provided.  They have insured that key issues and events have not slipped by.  Thank you!  H.R. "Ky" Holland - Director, Applied Technologies - Community & Technical College - University of Alaska - Anchorage

  • Thank you very much for taking so much time to walk us through the very involved issues of the Alaska gas pipeline.  My colleagues and I were very grateful for the opportunity to chat with you.     Christopher Otolorin Williams - Harvard Business School 2002 -  Boston*

  • My name is Leon Wilkins and my former address.....  I was getting info from you because I'm in a class at Lenoir Community College in Global Logistics.  Some of the info you have provided me has been very helpful.  In fact, I need your help in regards to....

  • This will teach folks (like me) not to take rare individuals like you for granted.  Ron Oligney, University of Houston.

  • Thank you for your help over the phone.  Any location information on gasline rights of way you are able to provide would be very much appreciated!  Andrew W. Balser -GIS & Remote Sensing Manager - Toolik Field Station - 311 Irving I - Institute of Arctic Biology - University of Alaska Fairbanks Fairbanks, AK 99775

7.  Organizations

  • Northern Gas Pipelines has been extremely useful to Commonwealth North as a highly current source of background information on gas issues as they relate to potential pipelines in Alaska. It was particularly helpful when our study group was researching our most recent study "Bringing Alaska's North Slope Gas to Market: Framing the Issues." Your coverage of the complex Canadian part of the situation is especially important to help Alaskans understand the overall puzzle that must be solved. Best of luck and keep up the good work.  Duane Heyman - Executive Director - Commonwealth North - Anchorage

  • "Dave Harbour's continuing dedication to up-to-the-minute information and his commitment to unbiased reporting is impressive. Northern Gas Pipelines is an invaluable resource for the industry, and those monitoring its developments."  Margaret Bryce, Team Leader - Energy Group (North America) - The Canadian Institute

  • I wanted to express my thanks to you and those responsible for the Northern Gas Pipelines. It is an excellent website with up-to-date information on the North American Gas Pipeline issues. I wanted you to know that I forward the information on to the various members of the Northern Forum who are interested in North American oil and gas issues, including the governments of the Yukon, Alberta and Northwest Territories of Canada, in addition to several Russian Regions. I periodically check to make sure that they want to receive this information and have received a consistent - "Yes - Keep sending it."   It is vital to keep the public and all interested players informed of events and activities surrounding the gas pipeline. Your Northern Gas Pipelines helps to achieve this goal.  Priscilla Post Wohl - Executive Director - Northern Forum - Anchorage

  • "Thanks for all the support you have given me and 'The Band ANWR'. Although I have never  personally worked in the oil industry, I have come to realize all Alaskans are affected by it. The experiences learned after 30 successful years in northern Alaska has equipped the oil industry to be able to explore responsibly in ANWR.  Without independence, one cannot have freedom. We are still dependent upon other nations for our energy needs. Many of these nations hate  Americans, yet they love our money. ANWR exploration is a step in the right direction toward more freedom. Dave Harbour's web site is a great source of current information. Keep up the good work, Dave!"    Gary Webster - The Band ANWR - Eagle River - Alaska  (Demo Clip for NGP Readers)
