Aug. 18 (Bloomberg) -- BP Plc leaked oil from a pipeline in Alaska’s North Slope, according to a report made to the National Response Center.

The pipeline released about 50 gallons of oil on land as it was being bled down for a “system safeout,” according to the report. The incident happened yesterday at 2:36 p.m. local time, the report said.

U.S. companies must notify the response center if they release hazardous substances in excess of reportable quantities, according to the Comprehensive Environmental Response, Compensation, and Liability Act, commonly known as Superfund.

Bloomberg News could not immediately verify the information in the filing was accurate.
