ConocoPhillips, Alaska’s top oil producer, announced it plans to develop the Nuna field, a move that will add a predicted 20,000 barrels of oil to the state’s daily production.
The company has held the small field since acquiring it in 2019 from Dallas-based Caelus. Drilling at Nuna is set to begin late next year, followed soon after by oil production, the company said. Nearly 30 development wells are planned reported the Anchorage Daily News.
