Bridge foundations in permafrost areas, Moose and Spinach Creeks, Fairbanks, Alaska / (Hanover, N.H.: Corps of Engineers, U.S. Army, Cold Regions Research and Engineering Laboratory, ), by Frederick E. Crory, United States. Department of Transportation, and Alaska. Department of Highways (page images at HathiTrust). Alaska’s North Slope has responsibly produced more than 18 billion barrels of oil since the discovery of the Prudhoe Bay oil field. Oil production has been the engine of economic growth in Alaska. It has funded up to 90 percent of the state’s unrestricted General Fund revenues in most years and has accounted for over $ billion in total.

  Oil Industry Copes With Climate Impacts As Permafrost Thaws Thawing permafrost in Alaska's Arctic is making it harder for oil companies to operate there. But a .   Alaska oil and gas operators active on the North Slope face a long-term, existential threat to infrastructure for which there is no easy solution – thawing permafrost. Scientists at the University of Alaska Fairbanks have been taking deep temperature measurements in permafrost soils underlying the producing oilfields on the slope and along.

Impacts of Oil Exploration and Drilling on Permafrost Examining the soil and water cycles of the region, one cannot ignore the presence of permafrost, or permanently frozen soil,¨ which underlies 80% of Alaska and remains a central issue in the debate about oil drilling.   Ecological recovery: Recovery at a site is indicated by growth of native plants and re-establishment of drainages, and a stable thermal regime typical of permafrost terrain.

Oil recovery and formation damage in permafrost. Jan ; O C Baptist; Baptist, O.C.,Oil recovery and formation damage in permafrost, Umiat Field, Alaska, Report of Investigations, Federal. Umiat field is located in the North Slope, Alaska where most oil reserves are within the permafrost.

The formation temperature is around 20°F and thus frozen filtrate is a crucial issue in formation damage. Frozen filtrate can form an impermeable barrier to oil flow and maximize formation damage in the permafrost.

The Umiat oil field is one such resource: a unique, shallow (− ft), low-pressure (− psia) reservoir within the permafrost zone with no initial gas cap, located north of the Arctic.

The first horizontal well in Umiat was a success, achieving an extended reach drilling ratio of with BOPD production rates and 0% water cut.

The well set two important records as the shallowest horizontal well drilled in Alaska and the first horizontal well drilled and landed entirely in permafrost in Alaska. The Umiat field of northern Alaska was discovered in the 's and is a remote, shallow, light oil accumulation consisting of multiple deltaic and marginal marine Cretaceous sandstones deformed by a thrust-related anticline.

While the accumulation may be significant ( billion barrels OOIP), it is shallow and partly in the permafrost zone. Umiat oil field is a light oil in a shallow, frozen reservoir in the Brooks Range foothills of northern Alaska with estimated oil-in-place of over 1 billion barrels.

Umiat field was discovered in the ’s but was never considered viable because it is shallow, in the permafrost, and.

Current high oil price and availability of new technologies allow re-evaluation of oil resources previously considered uneconomic. The Umiat oil field is one such resource: a unique, shallow (− ft), low-pressure (− psia) reservoir within the permafrost zone with no initial gas cap, located north of the Arctic Circle, 80 miles west of the Trans Alaska Pipeline System (TAPS.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.
