The article focuses on the oil and gas exploration Licensing system in Alaska. It informs that Alaska's licensing system is a hybrid between concessions as other nations do them and the state's traditional leasing system and offers alternative on public lands. Topics discussed include unsuccessfulness of the exploration wells drilled by companies in the Glennallen area, licenses given to exploration firms Cook Inlet Energy LLC and Doyon Ltd. and U.S. as minority among oil producing regions.
