AOGCC: Dunleavy dismisses French; Forester to stay on temporarily

Gov. Mike Dunleavy dismissed Alaska Oil and Gas Conservation Commission Chair Hollis French Feb. 26, following a public hearing earlier in February and findings from the hearing officer.

Commissioner Cathy Foerster, set to retire Feb. 28, told Petroleum News in an email that she has been asked to stay on for a bit until her position can be filled. AOGCC is a three-member commission, with two required for a quorum. French filled the public seat, Foerster holds the petroleum engineer seat and Commissioner Dan Seamount the geologist seat.

Petroleum News asked the governor's office about the status of appointments to the commission but did not immediately hear back.
