Hilcorp begins production from field south of Ninilchik

Anchorage Daily News -- By KRISTEN NELSON — Petroleum News

Hilcorp Alaska began natural gas production from Red Pad on the Kenai Peninsula last week.

Production is at 5 million cubic feet per day, Hilcorp Alaska spokeswoman Lori Nelson told Petroleum News in an email. She said Hilcorp is "continuing to monitor the system" and hopes to reach its original production estimate of 6.5 million cubic feet per day.

The field was discovered by Unocal in 2004, and the Red 1 well tested 3.2 million to 5.8 million cubic feet per day in a 26-hour test. A second well, Red 2, was also drilled and tested in 2004, but there were no measurable hydrocarbons. Production is from an existing gravel pad built by Unocal.

As in all things capitalism, there is bust until there is boom, then back to bust. Long range planning and measured business are often replaced by the desire to "strike while the iron is hot."

But it's not limited to business. It was individuals who lusted after acquiring a "bigger, better" house, refinancing their existing home to 130% of it's value to finance that Mercedes, boat, jet ski or vacation home. In the process driving up housing prices to an unbearable and unsustainable level until it had to break.

Now, the lust for profit, certainly, but for the individual the lust for cheaper energy, drives what will be an unsustainable search for more and more energy. Driving down prices to unsustainable levels.

After all,it's those prices that "fuel" the engine of worker demands for higher wages and benefits. Eventually, the cheaper costs are unable to sustain the higher wages and the collapse begins.

On that happy note...Merry Christmas.

I've never quite understood why more homes aren't heated with NG especially since there is so much here in the US.

With this oil glut seems like prices at the pump should be dropping? Instead they are rising around here.

A lot of product came on line simultaneously and first to market collects the bucks. Usually by contract and at prices adjusted/determined by the market.

Lots of untapped resources are circumvented to make the way for "green" opportunists.
