Presentation Title: The Alaskan Propane Project
Presented By: Harold Heinze, ANGDA CEO & Mary Ann Pease, MAP Consulting, LLC

Mary Ann introduced the project and what her role was with the pipeline, and then Harold gave us a more detail look at the alternative use of Propane.  Where Propane makes the most sense to use, and why it is not being utilized to its full potential.  Harold talked about how Propane can be Alaska’s sustainable alternative fuel solution for Rural Alaska, the applications, and why use propane for local heating/cooking.  He also talked about the challenges of bringing this resource to the market, and steps that could be taken to make propane more favorable.
