The Explorers 2010: Welcome to ‘The Explorers’ 2010

Welcome to The Explorers, an annual magazine from Petroleum News that is released each November at the Resource Development Council for Alaska’s conference in Anchorage.

The Explorers was first published in 2002 as The Independents magazine, but in 2004 we changed the name to The Explorers because, among other things, we wanted to salute companies that were actively searching for hydrocarbons that would help secure Alaska’s economic future.

And although not much exploration is planned for this coming year, development drilling continues in the northern part of the state and the chance to finally drill some promising offshore prospects in the Cook Inlet basin looks possible with assistance the State of Alaska is offering the first three companies to bring a jack-up rig to Alaska.

In the near future, it appears there will finally be pipelines to the Eastern North Slope, opening that region to exploration and development. As I write this editorial in mid-October 2010, BP, with the assistance of independent Savant Alaska, is in the process of permanently re-opening the Badami unit and pipeline, 20 miles east of Endicott, where the operational North Slope pipeline currently ends. And ExxonMobil is planning to take pipeline development 22 miles further east with a liquids line from the Point Thomson field in 2014.

So, this magazine is about Alaska’s oil and gas explorers and developers — independents and majors.

We hope you find it of interest.
