Resource Development

Since the 1970s, oil and gas development has provided the economic life blood of our region. Through its property tax on oil and gas organizations, the North Slope Borough has been able to build infrastructure and provide services to the local residents and communities. Also, Arctic Slope Regional Corporation (ASRC) and all the Village Corporations have received some economic benefits from resource development allowing for improved employment and education opportunities.
