BP to restart part of Alaska output

BP expects to restart today 10,000 barrels per day of Alaskan oil production at its giant Prudhoe Bay oil field, halted June 18 for a pipe leak, a BP spokesman said.
BP shut part of the 400,000 bpd field after workers discovered a small leak in a 24-inch diameter flow line, said BP Alaska spokesman Daren Beaudo.
The leak spilled less than a gallon of crude oil onto a gravel pad. No oil was spilled on the tundra, Beaudo said.
Flow lines carry a mixture of crude oil, water and natural gas from wells to one of six separation plants at Prudhoe Bay.
BP is currently replacing an 80-foot section of the flow line. Repairs are expected to be completed by today.
