ANCHORAGE, Alaska– A subsidiary of BP is reporting a petroleum spill on Alaska’s North Slope.
BP Expedition Alaska Inc. told state regulators Friday that oil is spraying from a well onto a pad and possibly onto the snow-covered tundra.
The Alaska Department of Environmental Preservation states the spill is continuous and the volume is unidentified.
BP workers found an uncontrolled natural gas leakage that was accompanied by the spray of petroleum.
BP and state regulators are examining the cause.
State officials say a clean-up will begin when the release has been managed.
Spilled concrete on southbound Interstate 15 near Sahara Avenue is backing up traffic on the highway, inning accordance with the Nevada Highway Patrol.
A mixing truck spilled concrete about 12:50 p.m. in the best lane of traffic on southbound I-15, closing the ideal three lanes of traffic start where the Sahara on-ramp fulfills the highway, NHP cannon fodder Loy Hixson stated.
Two street sweepers from the Nevada Department of Transportation were working to clear the street at 2:15 p.m., Hixson said.
The lanes are anticipated to resume in between 2:45 p.m. and 3 p.m.
Hixson stated it wasn’t clear how the spill took place, but there was no collision. In comparable circumstances, Hixson said, driver mistake and system malfunctions have caused the trucks to release the concrete while mixing.
