The article discusses the challenges of developing more offshore exploration projects for oil and natural gas at the Cook Inlet Basin of Alaska in 2008. Exploration activity is only modest and production from existing oil and gas fields is declining due to the constraints and high costs of getting skilled personnel and equipment into the Cook Inlet. Investments have also lagged behind due to the uncertainty of commercial oil and gas discoveries in the region.
