Alaska Native regional corporations are wildcatting for oil and gas in the state’s frontier basins, eyeing little-explored prospects after dusting off old studies by major oil companies.

They aren’t seeking the huge petroleum discoveries like those on the North Slope that have buoyed giants such as BP, Exxon Mobil and ConocoPhillips.

BETHEL – Calista Corp., the Alaska Native regional corporation for the Yukon-Kuskokwim Delta, announced Wednesday that it was issuing a fall dividend for the second year in a row.

The $2 million Akilista Dividend will be paid out by Nov. 13, Calista said. The corporation has about 13,000 shareholders. Those who hold 100 shares, the average, will each get $151, Calista said.

This marks the second year that Calista is awarding two dividend distributions, a spring dividend from its business operations and a fall dividend from its investment portfolio.

Since its creation under the 1971 Alaska Native Claims Settlement Act, Calista has distributed more than $33 million, more than half of that in the last three years. Unlike some regions, Calista does not have big mineral or logging resources to develop.

The Alaska Constitution created the seven-member council that oversees the selection and retention of judges. Republican Sen. Pete Kelly’s Senate Joint Resolution aims to amend the constitution and add three additional members to the independent citizens’ commission. The resolution initially called for the addition of nine new members but was amended. CONTINUE »
