"After only one week on the North Slope of Alaska, Senator Chance said to me, 'Almost everything said to me about the energy crisis by those briefers from Washington, D.C. was a lie.'"There is as much oil beneath the North Slope of Alaska as there is in Saudi Arabia according to the estimation of Atlantic Richfield executives. The United States government has allowed only one 100 square mile area in the vast North Slope to be developed. The North Slope of Alaska is the region of land north of the Brooks Mountains. Prudhoe Bay is a small region of a vast expanse of land.
"I was to watch that day what is probably one of the most phenomenal bits of intelligence information that has ever been discovered at Prudhoe Bay. However, this was also to be one of the most devastating things that the government of the United States has done to Americans in relation to the energy crisis."
“Gull Island is marginal. We have been allowed to drill there, but we know that of any angle of drilling whatsoever to the north would mean that it would be out of bounds of the oil field from which we have been given permission to produce. I guess you know, Chaplain, that this one pool of oil right here on the north side of Alaska from which we are presently producing can produce oil at the rate of two million barrels every twenty four hours, for the next twenty years, without any decrease in production. Not only that, but it will produce at artesian flow for the next twenty years.”
“Chaplain, we have just discovered and proven another pool of oil bigger than the Prudhoe Bay field. This is phenomenal beyond words.” He again said, “There is no energy crisis. Now we can build a second pipeline - now we can produce not only 2 million barrels of oil every twenty four hours. Chaplain, this is what we as oil company officials have been waiting for.”
“Chaplain, if this is allowed to be produced, we can build another pipeline, and in another year’s time we can flood America with oil – Alaskan oil, our own oil, and we won’t have to worry about the Arabs. We won’t be dependent on any nation on earth. Chaplain, if there are two pools of oil here this big, there are many, many dozens of pools of oil all over this North Slope of Alaska.” He went on to say, Chaplain, “America has just become energy independent.”
“…let me first re-emphasize that the government permitted the oil companies to drill and prove many sites (subsequently making them cap the wells and keep secret the proof of the finds), but they do not allow them to produce from the wells. This is why I have referred (below) to a number of wells having been drilled (after I left the North Slope.)The only production is permitted from the small area of the North Slope.”
“The honesty, integrity, and therefore the credibility, of the authors of this book is unquestionable to the limit of their combined facts and knowledge.”
“I can personally attest too many of the facts and certainly many of the conversations quoted in the book, as I spent a week with Chaplin Lindsey on the North Slope of Alaska during the construction of the Trans-0Alaska pipeline. I was privileged to talk with high officials of the Alyeska Pipeline Service Company.”
Pastor Lindsey Williams spoke of Gull Island in his book The Energy - Non Crisis. Today the island is known as Liberty Island. Liberty field lies beneath the shallow waters of the Beaufort Sea and is about five miles from land. Although the gravel island is five miles from shore, some of the wells of Liberty will be located eight miles from Endicott. Hence, it requires BP to extend over world record horizontal distances of 34,000 to 44,000 feet to reach the field reservoir which is 11,000 feet beneath the sea floor.
