Published:January 01, 2014
The Beluga River gas field is a large, shallow gas accumulation located approximately 40 miles (64 km) west of Anchorage in the northern Cook Inlet Basin in south-central Alaska. The Beluga gas field was discovered in 1962 while exploring for a deeper oil objective. Production commenced in March 1968, and more than 1.2 TCF have been produced as of 2011. The Beluga River gas field is approximately 7.5 mi long by 2.5 mi wide (12 km × 4 km). The trap is the Beluga River structure, a broad north-northeast trending fault-propagation fold with a steeply dipping reverse fault along...
