State officials say a cleanup will begin once the release has been controlled. Responders were unsuccessful on Friday night due to damage to a pressure gauge. Hilcorp Alaska has discovered several oil and natural-gas leaks in pipelines, but ice made had it impossible to fix the leaks. Once that occurs, "well-killing operations can take place", according to the December.
In 2006, a corroded pipeline released almost 5,000 barrels of crude oil, the largest oil spill in the North Slope at the time.
In 2010, a BP-operated drilling rig called Deepwater Horizon exploded, killing 11 people and spilling almost 5 million barrels of oil into the Gulf of Mexico, making it the largest oil spill in USA federal waters. "It's tough to determine collateral impacts at this point, but some incident-related slowdown at Prudhoe Bay seems at least a reasonable risk to consider". That's still down by nearly three-quarters from the peak of more than 2 million barrels in the late 1980s. In 2006, a BP well in Prudhoe Bay spilled about 267,000 gallons of oil, the largest in the region's history.
No people were at the well when it burst, and no injuries have been reported. Specialists deployed by Boots and Coots, a well control company, were arriving in the area yesterday to help seal the well.
"BP is in the process of shutting in a well at the Prudhoe Bay oil field that experienced an unplanned release of hydrocarbon", said Brett Clanton, a BP spokesman in Houston. BP and other groups were still working on a response plan for the leak on Sunday, according to the report. Alyeska is a joint partnership led by the North Slope's top producers, BP Plc, Exxon Mobil Corp. and ConocoPhillips. The company did not immediately respond to a request for comment on Monday morning. It has averaged a $1.16 premium to WTI this year.
