A clean-up operation is continuing after oil washed up on two miles (3.2km) of Hampshire coastline when a pipeline leaked in Southampton Water.
About 20 barrels of vacuum gas oil were spilled at Esso's Fawley terminal on Sunday night as a ship was unloaded.
Affected beaches from Hill Head to Solent Breezes were shut. Esso said health risks were "very, very low".
Southampton-based experts Oil Spill Response will assess whether oil has sunk into the sand.
