Some facts to ponder regarding "The North Slope"

Prudhoe Bay (Deadhorse) Alaska is home to the largest oil field in North America. It is located in Alaska between the coast of the Beaufort Sea and the North Slope of the Brooks Range Mountains. It is about 1200 mi. south of the North Pole and 250 mi. north of the Arctic Circle.

Arctic drilling rigs differ from their southern counterparts in that they generally are more self contained. As is evident by the picture the rigs are enclosed to protect it and the workers from the Arctic Winters. Many of the rigs can be transported from drill site to drill site without any disassembly. Many rigs have a camp house that moves with the rig to provide room and board for the workers. 

Other wildlife in the area: Arctic Fox, Arctic Ground Squirrels, Grizzly Bears, Polar Bears, Musk OX, Arctic Hares, Caribou (Approximately 25,000)and over 200 different bird and waterfowl species including geese, swans, seagulls and eagles . During the winter months only the arctic fox, ravens, and the occasional polar bear are to be seen.

Ice roads are built during the winter months to reduce the damage to the environment for access to remote drill sites. conditions need to be twenty below zero or less for construction thus limiting exploration drilling to the Winter months in most cases.


The distance from Prudhoe Bay to Washington DC is 3594 miles. The distance to the Alaska state capital is 938 miles. (as the crow flies) Prudhoe Bay is positioned 70.28 degrees north of the equator and 148.37 degrees west of the prime.

As of the 2012 census, the population of the was 2,174 people; however, at any given time several thousand transient workers support the Prudhoe Bay oil field. The airport, lodging, and general store are located at Deadhorse; the rigs and processing facilities are located on scattered gravel pads laid atop the tundra.
