The NorthStar oilfield is located six miles off the Beaufort Sea coast and 11 miles northwest of Prudhoe Bay. Oil was originally discovered in the NorthStar Unit by Shell in 1983 with exploration wells drilled from Seal Island. BP acquired most of the NorthStar Unit leases in 1995 and developed the field. On May 29, 2014, BP requested that DNR approve a transfer of its interests in the NorthStar pipelines to Harvest Alaska, LLC. Today, Harvest Alaska, LLC, operates the 10-inch oil pipeline and 10-inch gas pipeline that extend into the Beaufort Sea to the gravel island, sometimes referred to as NorthStar Island or Seal Island. The pipeline lease renewal review is in process.
