Gov. Tony Knowles, right, talks with Alyeska Pipeline Service Co. CEO David Wight, left front, and Alyeska Senior Vice President Bill Howitt about the patched hole in the trans-Alaska oil pipeline Monday afternoon. The permanent repair, above the governor, closed off a half-inch bullet hole in the pipeline near Livengood. Almost 300,000 gallons of crude spilled from the hole into the woods about 80 miles northwest of Fairbanks. john hagen / fairbanks daily news-miner
