Petroleum Plays and Systems in the National Petroleum Reserve - Alaska (NPRA)

SEPM Core Workshop 21

David W. Houseknecht

Publication date: 2001
Series: Core Workshop

The North Slope of Alaska has re-emerged as one of the most active exploration provinces in the United States. Recent exploration successes, economic benefits of applying innovative exploration and production technologies, evolving industry demographics, rising oil and natural gas prices, and the anticipation that North Slope natural gas resources may become economically viable and marketable through a planned pipeline have stimulated a renewed intensity in leasing and exploration activity.

Title information

The North Slope of Alaska has re-emerged as one of the most active exploration provinces in the United States. Recent exploration successes, economic benefits of applying innovative exploration and production technologies, evolving industry demographics, rising oil and natural gas prices, and the anticipation that North Slope natural gas resources may become economically viable and marketable through a planned pipeline have stimulated a renewed intensity in leasing and exploration activity. The focus of NPRA exploration appears to include both structural and stratigraphic objectives that may include strata spanning much of the stratigraphic column. The purpose of the core workshop is to prove an opportunity to examine a large collection of core from all major stratigraphic units present in NPRA. The chapters in this volume provide a current perspective on the genesis and petroleum potential of each stratigraphic interval.
