Production was shut down early Tuesday at Prudhoe Bay oil fields after operators lost power due to problems connected to high winds, BP PLC (BP) said.

BP expected power back later Tuesday and anticipated ramping up production, said spokesman Daren Beaudo.

The field on Monday was producing about 350,000 barrels as the company tried to restore full production after closing half the field in August over fears pipeline leaks and corrosion.

The power outage cut production to 20,000 barrels on Tuesday, Beaudo said.
