Created by Congress under the Oil Pollution Act of 1990, CIRCAC serves as a formal mechanism for public participation in the oversight of Cook Inlet’s oil industry. We have developed a reputation for unbiased research and monitoring. We have an established track record of building strong partnerships to advance projects and initiatives, many of which have grown to be of statewide significance. Because of our efforts, Cook Inlet’s stakeholders have been well represented in decisions affecting safe operations, production, exploration and transportation of crude oil.
