HOUSTON, Jan. 15 -- Brooks Range Petroleum Corp. reentered the North Shore-1 well on Jan. 10 to evaluate an oil accumulation initially tested in 1974.

Drilled to TD 13,319 ft measured depth and cased to 12,500 ft MD in 2007, the well is to be deepened 1,000 ft for tests of the Jurassic-Triassic Sag River and Ivishak formations. The rig will then move to the Tofkat-1 well in the Titania prospect area just east of Niuqsut east of the Colville River.

The joint venture consists of Brooks Range, TG World Energy Inc., Bow Valley Alaska Corp., and Ramshorn Investments Inc.
