Operations

Our focus is solely on Alaska -- operating both onshore and offshore oil assets in the Cook Inlet at the West McArthur River Unit as well as off the Osprey Platform at the Redoubt Unit. Additionally, Glacier operates the Badami Unit on the North Slope and owns gas assets at the North Fork Unit near Anchor Point on the Kenai Peninsula. Glacier operates all its fields and owns drilling, production and transportation infrastructure associated with these fields. Our substantial processing and transportation capacity in each of our operating areas affords us ample opportunity for production growth.
