Paper presented at the SPE Western Regional Meeting, April 23–27, 2017
Paper Number: SPE-185738-MS
... Abstract An operation was conducted to resurrect a shut-in injector and producer pair located in the Kuparuk sandstone formation on the North Slope of Alaska. Both wells had been shut in for 5 to 6 years due to low injectivity and low productivity. An injection profile modification was also...

... by the proposed "collision and subduction of the Yakutat terrane"( Bruhn and Haeussler 2006 ). The exploration and production activities within the Cook Inlet were relatively coincident with development activities in the North Slope. The first field was discovered in 1957 and this led to several other...

Paper presented at the SPE Western Regional Meeting, May 27–29, 2010
Paper Number: SPE-133592-MS
... Abstract Alaska’s North Slope is a world-class petroleum resource basin with two of the largest producing fields in North America, Prudhoe Bay and Kuparuk River Unit. What is not widely known is the vast resource of heavy oil above these reservoirs. Although comparable in size to these fields...
