CEA’s Alaska chapter works to raise awareness about Alaska’s contribution to domestic energy production for the lower 48. Alaska’s onshore and offshore production are crucial to the oil supply for America’s western region as well as America’s geopolitical presence in the Arctic region and America’s overall consumer energy prices.

Alaska is the anchor point for America’s presence in the Arctic, a region of growing geopolitical significance. CEA’s Alaska chapter works to remind consumers about the importance of the Arctic region, and Alaska’s primary role as the country’s only Arctic state.

CEA’s advocacy for the importance of the Trans-Alaska Pipeline, production in the National Petroleum Reserve- Alaska, Arctic offshore oil and gas exploration, and federal lands issues are all a priority of our Alaska chapter.
