This article is part of the Center for Media & Democracy's spotlight on front groups and corporate spin.

Alaska's Future is a front group that Associated Press reported was "created as a front for ExxonMobil Corp., BP PLC and ConocoPhillips to promote a natural gas pipeline deal."[1]

The group was created by the companies in 2005. The founding director and president of the group was George Culpepper Jr.. "There is no membership list. It was a front to hide the support of the Big Three," Culpepper told AP in late 2006. Culpepper left the group in early 2006. AP reported that "the group was set up in agreement between the three oil producers, Republican political consultant Art Hackney and the three founding directors: himself, Shane Langlund and Brandon Maitlen."[1]
