Spill at BP well in Alaska reported
Media covering the accident recall that this is not the first spill for BP's Alaskan operations, which account for over half of the state's oil and gas output.
BP has reported to regulators that the crude spray has landed on the drilling pad but it remains unsafe to approach the well and determine whether the crude spray has affected tundra in the area. The oil spray ended Saturday, but the well remained out of control and vented gas through the weekend.
In 2006, a corroded pipeline released almost 5,000 barrels of crude oil, the largest oil spill in the North Slope at the time.
BP Plc is working to secure an ongoing natural gas leak in a well on Alaska's North Slope that also sprayed crude oil for three days before that release was capped. Two leaks have been identified on the well, one near the top and one further down the well assembly.

On Saturday night, responders from BP, the Environmental Protection Agency and the Alaska DEC were able to connect hoses to valves and bleed pressure from the space surrounding the well's underground steel pipe. The second leak is still leaking natural gas, as well as a small amount of crude oil said BP. Back in 2009, a pipeline spilled some 1,100 barrels of crude in a BP-operated field. "There have been no reports of impacted wildlife".
On Monday, almost three days after the leak was found, ADEC announced the unified command had to managed to "kill" the well overnight and end the gas leak.
Fossil fuel companies have long eyed portions of Alaska's North Slope now off-limits to oil and gas production, including the Arctic National Wildlife Refuge, home to over 200 species of migratory birds and the last onshore area for polar bear dens. In 2006, a BP well in Prudhoe Bay spilled about 267,000 gallons of oil, the largest in the region's history.
