Great Bear Petroleum gets back to drilling

Great Bear Petroleum gets back to drilling

The great bear is back, or at least back drilling. Great Bear Petroleum never really left Alaska, of course, but the company did seem to go into deep hibernation after its initial winter drilling season in 2012.

Q&A: More details on Slope leases, prospects

Tim Bradner: The 3-D seismic Great Bear has done across its leases provides a detailed picture of faults in the shale. But why is this important? Great Bear Petroleum CEO Ed Duncan: The fault patterns are important for the development of source rock plays for two reasons. First, the presence and nature of natural fractures provide additional petroleum ‘storage’ volume and pathways to facilitate liquid flow. We know from our whole core analyses that the Shublik Formation is naturally fractured, carbonate rich with some zones of higher silica content and has very little clay. All of that is extraordinarily good news given that the Shublik is also a world-class oil prone source rock.
