State officials say an oily mist was sprayed over 27 acres of snow-covered tundra on the North Slope because of a pipeline failure.

Authorities say the release of natural gas and water containing crude oil was found during routine inspections Monday. The spray was active for about two hours before the line was isolated and depressurized.

The spill happened at the BP Exploration (Alaska) west operating area in Prudhoe Bay, at H Pad Well 8. That site remained shut down Tuesday.

The cause and amount of oil spilled is not known at this time. BP spokeswoman Dawn Patience says in an email to The Associated Press that crews were still assessing repairs, and it’s too soon to estimate any long-term impacts.

BP has a horrible record, but the US has thousands of miles of pipeline with very few accidents.

27 acres?

Nobody noticed anything at 20 acres or 25 acres?

Another page added to the toxic legacy of the oil & gas industry.

Insanity to expect a different result repeating the same mistakes.

Bad enough but not as bad as leak not so easily contained like wells in the Gulf of Mexico, in the North Sea and elsewhere in the world. It's gonna be bad one day soon enough.

Bad enough for the ecology of that sensitive Arctic region, but think about what might have happened had this occurred in a more populated area.

It's amazing there aren't more of these incidents. Considering there are upwards of 40,000 wells drilled every year, the accident ratios are very small.

This is not good. Arctic ecosystems are fragile and take an even longer time to recover from damage, than those in the south. Often the damage is irreversible. Very troubling news.
