BP Executive Turned Alyeska Pipeline Into "Deeply Distressed" Company

Jason Leopold, Truthout: "Alyeska Pipeline, the BP-led consortium that operates the 800-mile Trans Alaska Pipeline System (TAPS), has implemented deep budget cuts, deferred work on a number of important maintenance and upgrade projects, failed to study how relocating engineers would impact the safe operations and long-term integrity of the pipeline and is led by a chief executive who was described by the company's five vice presidents as 'intimidating,' 'demeaning,' 'aggressive,' 'confrontational,' 'unpredictable,' 'polarizing,' 'withering,' 'edgy,' 'vulgar' and 'inappropriate.' Those are just some of the critical findings contained in a closely held report obtained exclusively by Truthout."


Alyeska, Federal Regulators Probing Employee's "Cover-Up" Claims Related to May Oil Spill

Jason Leopold, Truthout: "An Alyeska Pipeline Service Company engineer sent a letter to federal regulators and BP's Office of the Ombudsman claiming internal company documents were altered following a 4,500-barrel oil spill May 25 to cover up the fact that Alyeska allegedly failed to perform maintenance on a key piece of equipment."
