Observer Newsletter

The council’s publication,The Observer, is a free quarterly newsletter with nearly 5,000 printed copies distributed throughout Prince William Sound, the northern Gulf of Alaska, lower Cook Inlet, and the Kodiak archipelago, as well as by request to interested citizens around the world, including regulators and industry.

The Observer covers council activities, developments in the oil transportation industry, and news about policy and operational issues related to marine oil transportation.  Major oil spill drills are covered, and Alyeska and the U.S. Coast Guard are invited to submit a column for each issue.

Subscriptions to the email and print versions of The Observer are available free by request. PDFs of the printed Observer are available below. Older editions are large files and may take some time to download over slower internet  connections.
