North Slope Shale News, Updates, and Information
The North Slope Shale prospect is one of the newest shale plays to hit mainstream and government discussion. Alaska’s legacy oilfield, Prudhoe Bay, may hold potential in its source rock for horizontal drilling and hydraulic fracturing. As we see in North Dakota, California, and Texas, places where there is legacy vertical production, could hold significant potential for shale exploration in its source rock. Prudhoe Bay is not only the largest conventional oilfield in the United States, but in North America. Starting with approximately 25 Billion barrels of recoverable reserves, industry estimates another 2 Billion recoverable with conventional technology. However, that does not take into account future shale exploration, horizontal drilling, and hydraulic fracturing potential.
