Johnston Creek Oil Seep

diagram

This is in the upland area where the seep oil flows from its source(s) down to Johnston Creek. The seep is on the western hillside above the creek about 1 mile in from the sea. Seep oil enters Johnston Creek via runoff and streams from the seep area and from the Sullivan Fault that underlies the Yakataga coast and is the source of the oil-producing formations. An early exploration well, Sullivan #1, can be seen next to the creek on its east shore, opposite the seeps.
