– A subsidiary of Miller Petroleum Inc., Huntsville, Tenn., reworked and returned to production its West McArthur River Unit-5 well in Alaska’s Cook Inlet at the rate of 557 b/d of oil and 131 Mcfd of gas from the Oligocene Hemlock formation.

Workover of the well, which last produced in December 2008 before a tubing failure, included adding new perforations below 13,000 ft in Hemlock bench 1-upper member (34 ft), which is the first time this member has been produced.

Miller plans to perforate in the same interval in WMRU-6, where a workover is in progress.
