AS 43.55.150. Determination of Gross Value at the Point of Production.
- (a) For the purposes of AS 43.55.011
- 43.55.180, the gross value at the point of production is calculated using the actual costs of transportation of the oil or gas, except
- (1) shipper of oil or gas is affiliated with the transportation carrier or with a person that owns an interest in the
- (2) contract for the transportation of oil or gas is not an arm's length transaction; or
- (3) method or terms of transportation of oil or gas are not reasonable in view of existing alternative
- (b) If the department finds that a condition in (a)(1), (2), or (3) of this section is present, the gross value
at the point of production is calculated using the actual costs of transportation, or the reasonable costs of transportation as determined
under this subsection, whichever is lower. The department shall determine the reasonable costs of transportation, using the fair market
value of like transportation, the fair market value of equally efficient and available alternative modes of transportation, or other

with an owner of the method of transportation shall be considered prima facie reasonable.
- (c) In determining the gross value of oil under this section, the department may not allow as reasonable costs of

oil if the loss, damage, or expense is incurred in connection with a catastrophic oil discharge from the vessel into
the marine or inland waters of the state;
- (2) the incremental costs of transportation of the oil that are attributable to temporary use of or chartered or
substituted service provided by another vessel due to the loss of or damage to a vessel regularly used to transport oil
and that are incurred in connection with a catastrophic oil discharge into the marine or inland waters of the state;
- (3) the costs incurred to charter, contract, or hire vessels and equipment used to contain or clean up a catastrophic oil
