Continental Offshore Stratigraphic Test (COST) and Industry Exploration Drilling

Continental Offshore Stratigraphic Test (COST) wells were drilled to provide geologic information on the Alaska OCS. The following reports summarize engineering, geological, and wire line data and information from these wells.

Release of Non-proprietary Seismic Data

The first data to be released for the Alaska OCS was in the year 2001. During that year, approximately 37,750 miles of seismic surveys in the Alaska OCS were made public. The total inventory of seismic data in Alaskan waters that will eventually be released totals nearly ½ million miles.
