NordAq applying for permits

NordAq Energy Inc. will apply for a right of way permit to construct a road, pipeline, drilling pad and production pad above subsurface estate owned by CIRI in the Kenai National Wildlife Refuge. NordAq drilled an exploratory natural gas well during the winter and accessed it on an ice road constructed by Peak Oilfield Service Co., a 50 percent-owned CIRI company. CIRI owns the subsurface estate in this area as part of the Cook Inlet Land Exchange and will receive royalties if gas is produced.
