BlueCrest Energy plans to drill for oil in Cook Inlet’s Cosmopolitan oil fields from the shore just north of Anchor Point. But, there is also a chance the company will place a rig in the water to drill for natural gas. Market speculation and debate over the state’s tax credits are making BlueCrest hesitate.

A Texas-based company will begin drilling for oil in Cook Inlet next year using extended-reach oil wells. BlueCrest Energy plans to drill onshore north of Anchor Point. KBBI’s Quinton Chandler attended informational meetings in Homer and Anchor Point this week. The participants seemed split between hope for an economic jump start and worry for the project’s safety.
