Hilcorp Alaska is applying for an underground oil and gas lease for five parcels of Kenai Peninsula Borough land in Anchor Point.
Marcus Mueller is the borough’s land management officer. He said Hilcorp is proposing to lease roughly 20 acres in the area.
“Those parcels include the Anchor Point Solid Waste site, which is about 15 acres so that's the biggest area in the mix,” he said. “Also the Anchor Point Fire Department which is a small parcel of land, and there's a couple of miscellaneous other parcels in that area--all about a mile or two from Anchor Point proper.”
