Furie Operating Alaska’s platform has arrived in Alaska from Texas.
The platform was built in Ingleside, Texas, this summer. On June 4 it left Corpus Christi, Texas, traveled through the Gulf of Mexico, went through the Panama Canal, sailed north through the Pacific Ocean and arrived in Kachemak Bay on Sept. 9, according to a press release from Furie.
The monopod platform will be set over Furie’s Kitchen Lights Unit No. 3 well, which is located in Cook Inlet about 20 miles northeast of Nikiski. In June 2013, commercially producible natural gas was discovered at the well.
