ASRC is one of the largest private landowners in Alaska, with ownership in fee simple of 5 million acres of land. Its lands have high potential for development. Following creation of the ASRC by the U.S. Congress in 1971, the corporation received a share of the $963 million provided by the Alaska Land Claims Settlement Act, plus a number of acres of land in proportion to the size of villages in its region. It was able to define and obtain title to parcels of land without restriction to any former title or land claim. It engaged experts to identify land with significant potential for petroleum, timber, fish, game, and tourist development. Its lands include half of the 429 million-barrel Alpine Oil Field which started production in 2001. Ref; https://pubs.usgs.gov/pp/pp1732/pp1732a/pp1732a.pdf.
