US Alaska Upstream Fiscal and Regulatory Report – Budget Problems May Force Fiscal Regime Changes
The reduction in tax credits, the large long-term state budget liabilities, and the inability to repay the investment credits, may force Alaska to modify its petroleum fiscal framework just a few years after the modification introduced by MAPA in 2013. The reduction in tax credits coupled with the difficulties in legally establishing the Alaska Tax Credit Certificate Bond Corporation and its bond repurchase program may dampen investment sentiment across Alaska despite the reduction at the federal level of corporate income tax to 21%. As a result of budget problems there may be an increase in conflicts between Alaska and the oil and gas producing municipalities. Moreover, the Trump administration wants to proceed with oil and gas activities within a 1.5 million-acre coastal plain in the Arctic National Wildlife Refuge, a federal area, but this project will face a strong environmental opposition slowing investment.
