Biden approves massive oil project in Alaska

After decades of roadblocks – the U.S. President gives the green light for the $7 billion project

In a shocking about-face, the Biden administration has approved a massive oil project in Alaska.

Land in the National Petroleum Reserve where the Willow oil Project is planned, holds up to 600 million barrels of oil.

The decades long oil drilling project besieged by setbacks, now has the green light for construction to begin.

The Interior Department made the announcement saying it approved the Willow Oil Project.

The agency says they approved a trimmed down version with only three drilling sites and less surface infrastructure than originally proposed to reduce the impact to local species and their habitats.

The $7 billion oil and gas drilling project is a major victory for the bipartisan congressional delegation from Alaska and a coalition of Alaskan native tribes who say the venture is much needed to bring new sources of revenue and jobs into the remote region.

Meanwhile, Progressive members of President Biden’s own party are calling it a disastrous decision.

Environmental advocates are expected to challenge the project in court.
