Fracking Opens Dangerous Door in Cook Inlet

Fracking Opens Dangerous Door in Cook Inlet

Posted by Bob Shavelson at May 06, 2016 06:21 PM |

BlueCrest Energy has proposed a fracking program at its Cosmopolitan Unit north of Anchor Point. The fracking target is about a mile and half deep, and over two miles offshore, so there’s little risk to drinking or surface waters. And BlueCrest plans to dispose of its fracking fluid wastewater in a regulated Class II disposal well on the Upper Peninsula. The BlueCrest fracking project has attracted considerable attention, but from Inletkeeper’s perspective, the greatest problems posed by more oil development don’t involve fracking in deep, offshore formations. Rather, the fact there’s zero production tax on Cook Inlet oil, on top of massive tax credits, means we’re almost giving away our publicly-owned resource.

Turnagain Arm, the northeast arm of Cook Inlet is one of only about 60 bodies of water worldwide to exhibit a tidal bore. The bore may be more than six feet high and travel at 15 miles per hour on high spring tides.

Turnagain Arm sees the largest tidal range in United States, with a mean of 30 feet (9.2 m), and the fourth highest in the world, behind Bay of Fundy (38ft/11.7m), Ungava Bay (32ft/9.75m), and Bristol Channel (31.5ft/9.6m).
