ANCHORAGE - Oil companies ConocoPhillips and Anadarko have the results back from tests performed on two wells in the National Petroleum Reserve-Alaska.
The companies say the wells were tested this past winter. Both lie about 20 miles southwest of the Colville River Unit development on the North Slope.
Officials say the rates of production ranged from 500 barrels a day to 1,300 barrels a day of high-gravity oil. Gas production rates averaged about 1.5 million cubic feet per day for each well.
The companies say the two wells are being considered for possible satellite development with the Alpine oil field.
