The Alaska Gasline Development Corp. has hired former White House Communications Director Mike Dubke to help promote the $43 billion Alaska LNG Project that aims to move North Slope gas south and then to Asian markets.
Dubke, through his company, Black Rock Group, is being paid $15,000 a month to advise the corporation about its communication strategy, Alaska Public Media reported Monday. Dubke worked with President Donald Trump’s administration for three months in 2017. He previously worked on the election campaigns of Sens. Lisa Murkowski and Dan Sullivan.
He is to work on strategies to “amplify the benefits” of the project to the Trump administration, Congress and federal regulators, his contract says.
