Colville expansion requested

ConocoPhillips Alaska Inc. is requesting another expansion of the Colville River unit.

The expansion would add approximately 239.93 acres from one federally managed lease to the North Slope unit. The lease - AA 84140 - is located in the center of the unit.

The expansion is the seventh proposed for the Colville River unit and is a different matter from the fifth expansion, which would incorporate leases from the former Tofkat unit.

In its sixth expansion, ConocoPhillips requested and received permission to expand the unit to the west to include a bundle of acreage between the Colville River unit and the neighboring Greater Mooses Tooth unit, which the company also operates. The company is currently developing the GMT-1 project and is permitting a potential GMT-2 project.

The Alaska Department of Natural Resources is taking comments through April 17.
