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 in Prince William Sound, including news about policies, regulations, operations at the Valdez Marine Terminal, oil spill prevention and response, effects of the oil industry on the environment, and other issues related to the safe transportation or oil through Prince William Sound. Major oil spill drills are covered, and Alyeska is invited to submit a column for each issue.
