  • POA-2014-288-M1, Cook Inlet

    Expiration date: 7/26/2016

    BlueCrest Alaska Operating LLC's stated purpose is to conduct a two-well offshore exploratory drilling program within ADL 384403. The applicant proposes to conduct exploratory drilling at two new well locations utilizing the Spartan 151 jack-up rig. The new well locations would be within 100 feet of these coordinates: (Well A2) Latitude 59.886906º N., Longitude 151.882778º W.; and (Well A6) Latitude 59.886914º N., Longitude 151.882781º W. Drilling is proposed to begin in summer of 2017 and would take 40 days per well to complete. If delays occur, drilling may occur in 2018. Drilling would occur in the open water season, generally between April and November. In addition to the proposed drilling, other activities that would require a DA authorization include drive pipe hammering, which is the process by which a drive pipe is driven into the sediment prior to the drilling of the oil well. The drive pipe prevents loose substrate from collapsing on to and obstructing the well bore. The proposed drive pile would be 30 inches in diameter, and would be installed to 200 feet below the mudline using an impact hammer. Driving of the drive pile would take 1 to 3 days at each well site. Please contact Katherine A. McCafferty at (907) 753-2692, by fax at (907) 420-0813, or by email at if further information is desired concerning this notice.
