I tend to think some geological activity was involved.
The gulf is active and has some wierd things in it. They have the only volcanoes in the world that blow asphalt. Plus there are bunches of mud volcanoes all over the place.
... it could be caused by a natural oil seep, although the odds of a seep of that size occurring right around the time of the Deep Horizon disaster is nearly zero.

I have a sick feeling in the pit of my stomach about things which are not being revealed to the public, that spell dire things in the near future. Look around you. Life as you know it is going to change soon.

The Ixtoc I oil well exploded in the Gulf of Mexico in June 1979. The oil drilling platform then caught fire and collapsed, rupturing valves and making it difficult for rescue personnel to control the damage. The spill continued until March 1980.
