East Prudhoe Restart May Be Soon

Sources say BP may be restarting half of the 200,000 barrel-per-day production from the eastern side of Prudhoe Bay, Flow Station #1, by the end of September. The top US pipeline regulator (we never, for a minute, thought there was no such thing) is supposed to tour the facilities on Friday

Winter is coming soon, and it is either start pumping gas through those pipelines or empty them out. If oil congeals in the pipes, there would be a risk of environmental damage in case the lines developed leaks in the winter. BP’s eye is black enough already.
