Apache Sees Great Potential in Cook Inlet

Apache Alaska is continuing to pursue permits to conduct further seismic testing around the Cook Inlet, which Apache’s Lisa Parker said is still months away…


Parker: “Apache, over the last year has been able to conduct seismic over on the west side of Cook Inlet in Tyonek area and south, and then out in the middle of Cook Inlet. We’ve acquired over 200,000 acres of seismic data, some of that we’re still process and some that has been processed and the geologists are now starting to analyze.”


We asked Parker what Apache has seen that encourages them to pursue further testing…


Parker: “Cook Inlet is an active oil and gas basin since the 1970’s; when Prudhoe Bay was discovered for doing exploration and development, it’s been abandoned, and based on what our geologists have seen, they believe that there is still oil and gas to be recovered and developed here in Cook Inlet.”
