Arctic Slope Regional Corporation owns nearly 5 million acres of land on Alaska’s North Slope. ASRC lands are located in areas that have either known resources or are highly prospective for oil, gas, coal and base metal sulfides. ASRC is committed to developing these resources and bringing them to market in a manner that respects Iñupiat subsistence values while ensuring proper care of the environment, habitat and wildlife.
Goals & Objectives
When ASRC began selecting the land entitled to its shareholders under the Alaska Native Claims Settlement Act, it set clear goals and objectives:
- To gain title to the lands with the greatest resource potential
- To explore and develop ASRC lands
- To produce and market the resources from them
Land Department Mission
Actively manage, evaluate and economically develop ASRC lands and natural resources in a manner sensitive to the cultural and subsistence values of Inupiat shareholders.
