States with measurable oil and natural gas production benefit financially, and Alaska is no exception. Royalty payments to the state, which are then doled out to every Alaskan, are nothing new. However, the possibility of it taking a 20-30% stake in the North Slope project to export liquified natural gas by BP (NYSE: BP  ) , ConocoPhillips (NYSE: COP  ) and ExxonMobil (NYSE: XOM  ) certainly is. The project involves building an 800-mile pipeline, a job for TransCanada (NYSE: TRP  ) , to deliver natural gas to an export terminal in the southern portion of the state. With project cost estimates starting at $45 billion, this could be a huge undertaking for the 49th state in the Union. For more, tune in below.

An exclusive, brand-new Motley Fool report reveals the company we're calling OPEC's Worst Nightmare.
