Cook Inlet Energy’s David Hall delivered good news about jack-up rigs in the Cook Inlet at Wednesday’s Kenai Chamber of Commerce lunch.
The independent oil and gas company has plans to add two rigs to the list of those available for Cook Inlet production.
Rig 34, a drill rig brought up from Tennesse earlier this year, is being upgraded for use in Alaskan waters at the West MacArthur River unit.
That unit is an area with state oil leases on the west side of the Cook Inlet, just northwest of Nikiski.
Eventually the rig will be used for shallow gas well drilling.
