BP Screws Up Alaska Again

BP Races to Contain North Slope Well After Finding Leaks

A well operated by BP Exploration Alaska Inc. on Alaska’s frigid North Slope is no longer spraying crude oil after leaks were discovered Friday morning.

The well, located in the Greater Prudhoe Bay area, was venting gas, which caused a spray of crude oil to impact the well pad. By Sunday afternoon in Alaska, that had been stopped. A second leak had been reduced but was still emitting gas, the Alaska Department of Environmental Conservation said in a statement. Well pressure was monitored throughout the night and excess pressure was bled off to keep it within a safe range. . . .

    A small boat like that wouldn’t hold enough fuel to get that far offshore

    • sometimes big boats launch little boats far away from shore to do a task, clean the hull etc. …. maybe it was a workboat that ran out of gas.
      But sport boats have big gas tanks.
