Governor Parnell meets with Korean Gas Officials

FAIRBANKS, Ak - Governor Sean Parnell recently met with Korean gas officials to discuss possible opportunities to export large volumes of Alaska Liquefied Natural Gas (LNG).

Parnell met with Mr. Kangsoo Choo, Chief Executive Officer and President of Korea Gas Corporation (KOGAS) in Juneau.

This is the second meeting Parnell has had with KOGAS officials.

He met with Choo during a September trade mission to the Republic of Korea and Japan to promote Alaska LNG.

KOGAS is the world's largest LNG buyer.

The Parnell administration says this furthers efforts by the governor to generate interest from Asian utilities and governments in a large scale Alaska LNG export project.
