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.
