This is the second edition
Dispelling the Alaska Fear Factor is a comprehensive guide to Alaska's oil and gas basins and business environment. The purpose of the guide is to give E&P companies interested in the state's oil and gas potential the basic information they need to make investment decisions.

The guide's 16 chapters include everything from the geology and prospectivity of Alaska's basins to permitting oil and gas projects. The fear factors underlying the belief that you can find lots of oil and gas in Alaska, but can't make as much money producing it as you can elsewhere in the world, spawned the guide's title, Dispelling the Alaska Fear Factor. Chapter 2 explores the realities of that belief which partly comes from the high cost of operating in Alaska, and partly from misinformation. Individuals coming to Alaska to work for oil companies and service firms can find pertinent information about Alaska's oil patch, including what it's like to live in the state (chapter 16).
