Alaska Upstream: 2014 in review

Alaska Upstream: 2014 in review

Report summary

Independents led the six-fold increase in signature bonuses across Alaska. Excluding the 2008 federal Chukchi Sea lease sale, 2014 bonuses were the highest in over a decade. The Central Arctic lease sale accounted for over 80% of the total, attracting US$55 million in bonuses. We believe increased certainty about the state's oil-tax regime and newly-commissioned infrastructure in the eastern North Slope spurred additional interest.
