BP-Owned Alaska Oil Pipeline Shut After Spill - Reuters

Wait, what? Another one?

A power outage during a fire-command system test triggered the opening of relief valves at a BP-owned pipeline in Alaska on Tuesday.

Thankfully, it seems it was all contained by backup systems.

BP's having a rough time, huh?
