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.
The Department said that a Forward Looking Infrared ( FLIR ) overflight showed that the crude spray plume did not leave the pad, however, the situation is not safe yet for responders to access the area and confirm that there have been no impacts to adjacent tundra.
In general, oil companies have been producing oil and pumping associated natural gas back into reservoirs.
According to a Sunday report from the Alaska Department of Environmental Conservation, the well is no longer spraying crude oil, as it was when employees of BP Exploration Alaska Inc. identified it on Friday. The team halted the well leaks overnight, BP said in a statement on Monday.

No injuries have been reported. On April 7, Hilcorp announced that it would cut off the flow of natural gas in the most recent leak and fill the line with filtered seawater. Once well control has been achieved, BPXA will work with their Oil Spill Response Organization, Alaska Clean Seas (ACS), to delineate the impacted area. The authorities have not established yet, what prompted the well to discharge oil and gas.
