      Researchers from the University of Alaska Fairbanks are mapping oil and gas seeps off Alaska’s coast to better understand hydrocarbon resources and seafloor ecosystems. The work is being funded by the US Bureau of Ocean Energy Management. The Bureau of Mines investigated two areas of the Alaska Peninsula (Iniskin Peninsula and Becharof Lake) where oil and gas seeps were known to occur in an attempt to determine (1) whether the seeps are still active and (2) the amount of bitumen contained in the drainage leaving the seeps. The oil, water, oil-water, and gas were sampled and analyzed.

    Prudhoe Bay Oil Field is a large oil field on Alaska's North is the largest oil field in North America, covering , acres (86, ha) and originally containing approximately 25 billion barrels ( × 10 9 m 3) of oil. The amount of recoverable oil in the field is more than double that of the next largest field in the United States by acreage (the East Texas oil field), while the Country: United States. Natural oil seep, Oil Creek, Alaska (David Page) These seeps occur both on and offshore, and as happened in the rest of the country, it was these seeps that brought prospectors to the region, and.

    Oil Seep (1/12) «prev next» Oil seep: Naturally bleeding from the ground, oil colors a brisk little stream and gives the whole valley the smell of petrochemicals.   The confusion has opened a window for Oil Search to push ahead with a promising field in Alaska’s North Slope oil region that it bought into in and where it is the project operator. Seeps are also known to be present along the northern and southern coastlines of Alaska and at the coastline of Baffin Island, Canada. Becker and Manen () identified 29 seeps within the coastal regions of Alaska. Of the 29 areas, 14 are confirmed as actual oil seeps and 15 are unconfirmed reports from the shoreline of the Gulf of Alaska.

Seeps occur when crude oil leaks ebook fractures in the seafloor or rises up through seafloor sediments, in much the same way that a freshwater spring brings water to the surface.
