    ConocoPhillips has set a new record for the longest well ever drilled in Alaska. ConocoPhillips Alaska said on Thursday that it set the record at the drill site CD5 in the Colville River Unit (Alpine) on Alaska’s North Slope.. CD5 is the first commercial oil development on Alaska Native lands within the boundaries of the National Petroleum Reserve-Alaska (NPR-A). On J the Senate Committee on Energy and Natural Resources held a hearing to discuss the remediation of federal legacy wells within the National Petroleum Reserve-Alaska (NPRA). Between and the United States Geological Survey (USGS) and U.S. Navy were commissioned by the federal government to drill oil and natural gas.

    2 to 3 years to drill a single exploratory well. Exploratory wells are slower to drill because geophysical data are collected during drilling, e.g., rock cores and well logs. Typically, Alaska North Slope exploration wells take two full winter seasons to reach the desired depth.   Recent drilling results indicate that the National Petroleum Reserve-Alaska contains roughly a tenth of the oil that federal scientists had previously estimated, the U.S. Geological Survey.

    density tabulation in the northern portion of the Arctic National Wildlife Range, and a northern Alaska paleomagnetism- plate tectonics study. Geologic mapping coverage is shown on fig. 2. Test wells Test well data in NPR-4 are shown in fig. 1 and in table 1. The 45 core tests (page 10) are shown neither on fig. 1 nor I in table Size: 1MB. Your editorial "Obama's Great Alaska Shutout" (Oct. 15) accurately describes the situation regarding the administration's proposed actions in the National Petroleum Reserve-Alaska .

This publication presents the following data from eleven of those 27 wells: general information, well core images, depths to specific stratigraphic units, well core gamma ray logs in LAS format, well log information in LAS format, geological and drilling history reports.

This report contains photographic images and data from petroleum exploration wells drilled within and near the National Petroleum Reserve-Alaska (NPRA).

The volume is organized into six chapters, each of which contains images and well data (including a GIS project of public domain cores) pertinent to the geology and petroleum potential of NPRA.

National Petroleum Reserve in Alaska. Formerly known as Naval Petroleum Reserve No. 4, the National Petroleum Reserve in Alaska (NPR-A) is now a vast ~million-acre area on Alaska's North Slope.

Inmindful of the land's conceivable petroleum value, President Harding set aside this area as an emergency oil supply for the U.S. Navy.

The most recent data on drilling waste disposal by the American Petroleum Institute (API) () shows the oil industry used reserve pits in 68 percent of the oil and conventional natural gas wells drilled in and closed loop drilling systems in to be 4 million BOPD by (National Petroleum Council, ).

Despite the widespread availability of heavy oils, the recorded annual production in corresponded to only 12% of the total annual production (Meyers and Attanasi, ).

Furthermore, heavy oils with better quality in terms of composition and density are. The agency now estimates that the National Petroleum Reserve-Alaska has between to billion barrels of technically-recoverable oil on the federal lands in the National Petroleum Reserve-Alaska with a mean estimate of billion barrels.

Prudhoe Bay Oil Field is a large oil field on Alaska's North is the largest oil field in North America, coveringacres (86, ha) and originally containing approximately 25 billion barrels ( × 10 9 m 3) of oil.
