Prudhoe Bay Unit In the Prudhoe Bay Unit we sampled three tundra stream systems: the Putuligayuk (Put) River, the Little Put River, and Washout Creek (Figure 1). A description of each of these stream systems is presented below. Putuligayuk River The Put hver is a tundra stream system that originates in lakes located south of the Prudhoe Bay. Geologic overview. Several publications relate the exploration process leading to the discovery of Prudhoe Bay field and its geologic characteristics (Morgridge and Smith, Jones and Speers, Jamison et al.).Briefly, Prudhoe Bay field lies along the crest of the Barrow Arch, an east-west-trending, Cretaceous anticline formed by the northward thrusting of the Brooks Range ().Link: Web page.

discovery of another Prudhoe Bay-size field in ANWR or elsewhere on the North Slope will help reverse this trend, a field discovered in would not likely be brought into production before As of early , four major oilfields were producing oil in the North Slope of Alaska: Prud-hoe Bay, Kuparuk, Lisburne, and Endicott (see Figure 3-l). Prudhoe Bay Oil Field is a large oil field on Alaska's North is the largest oil field in North America, covering , acres (86, ha) and originally containing approximately 25 billion barrels ( × 10 9 m 3) of oil. The amount of recoverable oil in the field is more than double that of the next largest field in the United States, the East Texas oil y: United States. Some wildlife seen frequently in the Prudhoe Bay vicinity are: Arctic fox (which are quite curious and seen nearly every day), brown (grizzly) bears, caribou, and a variety of birds, such as ravens and geese. Other wildlife seen less frequently include polar bears, red fox, and musk oxen. structural-stratigraphic traps similar to that at the Prudhoe Bay field (fig. 1), where approximately 12 billion bbl of oil has been produced and more than 3 billion bbl of reserves remains (table 1; Alaska Division of Oil and Gas, ).

THE GEOLOGICAL SETTING OF PRUDHOE BAY/NORTH SLOPE OIL FIELDS Steven P. Edrich* BP Alaska Exploration San Francisco, CA ABSTRACT The North Slope is a prolific hydrocarbon province with billion reservoir barrels of oil and trillion cubic feet of . The Prudhoe Bay oil field: The largest oil discovery in the USA. The Prudhoe Bay oil field is located in Alaska on the North Slope. The onshore field spans , acres. Due to the immense size, satellite fields are established within the field. These extract smaller quantities of oil and gas. tal impacts from the construction of the Prudhoe Bay oil field and associated northern segment of TAPS are summarized in Table 1. The first significant near-shore oil field in the Prudhoe Bay area to be developed was the Endicott project, located in waters to m deep approx- imately km out in the Sagavanirktok River by: Summary of the fishery investigations conducted in the North Pacific Ocean and Bering Sea from July 1, to July 1, by the U.
