Alaska officials probing BP oil, gas wells at Prudhoe Bay after spill

ANCHORAGE, Alaska (Reuters) – Regulators in the U.S. state of Alaska will investigate all of the oil and natural gas wells operated by BP (LON:BP) Plc at its Prudhoe Bay oil field after the release of a small amount of crude oil and gas from a well that had earlier been shut.

The Alaska Oil and Gas Conservation Commission (AOGCC) has scheduled a Feb. 7 hearing “to assess the mechanical integrity of Prudhoe Bay wells operated by BP Exploration (Alaska), Inc.,” the agency said in a notice issued on Friday.

Last month’s leak occurred at one of 14 wells that BP had shut in 2017 following a much bigger release oil and gas then.
