JUNEAU - The state could be getting an oil revenue boost.
On Thursday, federal regulators ruled that owners of the 800-mile, trans-Alaska oil pipeline system overcharged for shipping oil in 2005 and 2006.
The state collects money once the tariffs get assessed on the wellhead value of a barrel of oil. Higher tariffs mean less money for the state.
Regulators ordered pipeline owners BP, ConocoPhillips, Exxon Mobil Corp., Chevron Corp. and Koch. to pay a "limited refund."
