A hungry wolf runs faster, and that means Prudhoe Bay should be in good hands with Hilcorp.

The long-rumored blockbuster deal finally announced on Aug. 27 marks a historic transition for the largest North American oil field ever discovered as pioneering Alaska producer BP is exiting the state in a $5.6 billion asset sale.

BP leaves huge shoes to fill, not only from its 60-year presence on the North Slope where it has helped produce more than 13 billion barrels of oil to far exceed the original estimates of less than 10 billion, but also from its community presence of active employees and millions upon millions in charitable donations.
