Plenty of questions surround the proposal, including when, or if, Armstrong Oil and Gas, a privately held company from Denver, will take over majority ownership and operation, said Lanston Chinn, chief executive of the village's Native corporation, Kuukpik Corp.

"Subsistence resources and the subsistence lifestyle have to be protected to our liking for oil and gas development to move forward," Chinn said.

Numerous questions surround the project, presenting uncertainty about whether development will occur, said Lanston Chinn, CEO of Kuukpik Corp., the Alaska Native corporation in the village more than 600 miles north of Anchorage.

"I think you could say Repsol and its partner Armstrong feel good about the finds they've made, but there's a lot more work for them to do before they can say proof positively what exactly they have there," Chinn said.
The Native entity wants to ensure the highest-level review, Chinn said. It won't support development that does not protect the village, the environment and subsistence needs, he said.
"Oil is a non-recoverable resource," Chinn said.
Chinn said the Native corporation will continue to closely monitor the proposal. He said Repsol presented conceptual information to the village this winter in what he called "an initial dog-and-pony show."
The concept showed that a central processing facility to remove water and gas from oil would be located in a floodplain 5 or 6 miles north of the village.
The village would be directly downwind from the facility, something residents won't support and state and federal agencies will take a hard look at, he said.
"I told them that will never fly," Chinn said. "I said, 'You will have to move it.' "
He said any draft permits must also be submitted to the corporation so it can conduct its own review.
"They can submit things to the Army Corps, but they'll have to submit it to us too and we'll have to sit down and work out a deal with them, and that will be part of any negotiation," he said.
