Jeremy Price.

WASILLA — Gov. Mike Dunleavy has named Jeremy Price the Public Commissioner on the Alaska Oil and Gas Conservation Commission.

“Jeremy Price shares my vision for a state that is both economically competitive and protects the interest of Alaskans,” Dunleavy said in a press release issued by the governor’s office Tuesday. “I welcome him into this new role as Chair of AOGCC and look forward to his work to prevent waste of our natural resources while ensuring our regulatory environment yields greater recovery of Alaska’s oil, gas, and geothermal potential. I’m confident Jeremy will work to increase collaboration between AOGCC and the Alaska Department of Natural Resources. Ultimately, he understands that Alaskans are the customer and we are in their service.”

Price, who is also Dunleavy’s deputy chief of staff, has worked in a wide range of public policy roles, including in areas of oil and gas policy, for Congressman Don Young, Senator Lisa Murkowski, the American Petroleum Institute and the Alaska chapter of Americans for Prosperity, according to the release.

Price will also assume duties as AAOGCC chair. Price is set to start Oct. 7, and is subject to legislative confirmation.
