The Totchaket No. 1 exploration well, drilled in the Nenana basin this summer by Doyon Ltd. and Cook Inlet Region Inc., encountered multiple gas shows but did not find commercial oil or gas, CIRI has announced. Based on drilling results conducted so far in the basin, the corporations continue to view the basin as holding considerable resources, CIRI said.
Drilling of the Totchaket well, on the east side of the Tanana River, about 20 miles north of the town of Nenana, began on June 6 and ended on July 5.
