Oil Spill Reported Near Deepwater Drilling Site in Gulf



As we all focus our attention towards Japan and other Governmental take over attempts...........Lets not forget the Gulf of Mexico..........It appears that there are new reports of a 100 mile oil slick located near the Deep Horizon............

We will be updating this story as more news is discovered..........


The Coast Guard is investigating reports of a potentially large oil slick in the Gulf of Mexico not far from the Deepwater Horizon site. According to a knowledgeable source, the slick was sighted by a helicopter pilot on Friday and is about 100 miles long. A fishing boat captain said he went through the slick yesterday and it was strong enough to make his eyes burn.



According to the Times Picayune, the Coast Guard has confirmed they are investigating a potentially large 100 mile slick about 30 miles offshore. They are going to a site near the Matterhorn well site about 20 miles north of the BP Deepwater Horizon site, according to the paper. The Matterhorn field includes includes a deepwater drilling platform owned by W&T Technology. It was acquired last year from TotalFinaElf E&P.



Independent pilots are attempting to reach the slick today. Bonnie Schumaker with Wings of Care reported she saw a slick two days ago and is attempting to reach the site.

What a #ed up world we live in. On the same day a new war for oil has started, and a new oil spill just happened.

U.S. Coast Guard Investigating Oil Slick Reports in Gulf




HOUSTON -- The U.S. Coast Guard said late Saturday that it is investigating reports of a miles-long oil slick in the Gulf of Mexico.

The Coast Guard said in a news release that it received a report of a three-mile-long rainbow sheen off the Louisiana coast just before 9:30 a.m. local time on Saturday. Two subsequent sightings were relayed to the Coast Guard, the last of which reported a sheen that extended from about 6 miles south of Grand Isle, La. to 100 miles offshore.

It looks like they are already attempting to cover it up.......


The environmental writer and frequent Huffington Post contributor Jerry Cope has confirmed the approximate size of the slick and says that skimming operations have been under way for at least 24 hours now. The suspected source is the Matterhorn Mc243 facility only about 25 miles from where BP’s Macondo well spewed more than 200 million gallons of crude into the Gulf last year.

There are already allegations that the Coast Guard and other authorities are busy trying to cover up the spill, so stay tuned.

could it be that the effect of the corexit in the oil is fading and the oil is starting to get fluid again and resurface?

Looks like it is W&T Offshore Incorporated. Not sure how this all works, but they have a 100% working interest in the well.

This is why MSM is so terrifying on their reporting. Better Libya and Japan then the GULF in our backyard that has serious consequences for us in the US more then anything. NOT less important off shore.(Anybody hurting bleeds and hurts the same)

And I mean no disrespect to anybody in any Country,.. but the NONreport by our Media for the atrocity being ignored in our own waters and boardering nations is pretty devestating..

We were bulldozed into being MADE to forget about it by MSM.. Plus? we don't want to hear how BAD that water got poisoned. It hurts us. We WANT to pretend it's fine. (I don't)

Better to hurt over THERE for humanity. Makes it easier HERE for us to watch something farther away.(hey just TV). Not much less hurtful either.But Less hurtful. Unless family and friends in Military or in Harms way in the other country are involved. Then REALLY hurtful.

BullShi.....


AND? I'm not saying don't drill again.. But DON'T throw it under the carpet again if there is an error.
.Clean up was abysmal at best..
American people won't allow it again.. Drill Clean or clean it up. And CLEAN.. You people that allowed it to NOT get clean? Shame. That poor gulf and the people that live there have not seen the end of it by a long shot.

Oh... You want to see an American get pissed when a company like BP says their responsibitly is over in the Gulf and everythings fine? Hey.. I'm an American citizen first. Don't give me your global diatrob.

DON"T think because you payed off some fisherman in the Gulf the rest of America did'nt make a note on how crappy that went. That's our food and our peoples lifes work there. It's NOT clean..and it's STILL getting worse.

DON'T think we're not watching the way the Japanese LIED to their citizens about EVERYTHING, as the situation continues to develope.

DON"T think we're not watching and feeling unsure exactly how you'll present things to us too...regardless of the severity of the situation..

Americans are'nt stupid. NOR the Japanese. NOR most countries peoples..

DUPED??... ALL the time.

That's on us and YOU.
Let's try and learn ,and be aware from these mistakes.

I know I am.

I cant confirm this but this is what I have found in another blog........


Noble Energy is the operator, but the company owns only about 23 percent of the well. Two smaller companies, Red Willow Production and Houston Energy LP, own smaller stakes.

And the holder of the biggest percentage, 46.5 percent? BP.

Considering we have so much more oil in both the upper midwest and Alaska that is easier and more plentiful and has less risks involved it is only logical to assume that the real reason for doing this type of drilling is not to get oil but to poison our food supply.

We have enough oil to last for hundreds of years in the U.S. that is safe, and easily accessible.

These globalists are evil, sick people.

It 'made his eyes burn'?? Is that normal for fresh crude? Because that sounds like what people described happening when they came in contact with the crude/corexit mixture so many months back.

Can someone out there tell me whether fresh crude makes one's eyes sting?

So, is this a pocket of older crude that has been suspended below the surface up until now, and finaly because buoyant enough to surface, as opposed to a new leak?

Do we? Based on current and expanding consumption levels? I'd be interested to see a Source for that.. Thanks.

Sientifically, that's not suppose to happen. Being from Florida, I learned alot about the spill and its effects last year. Chances are more likely it's a new spill, or leak from the old site.

There is no one representing the people of the U.S. any more. All news agencys respresent the New World Order. The U.S. Government is the military aspect of the Order. They already know our asses are dead and have already taken steps to protect the elite, what happens to us is moot. Congress and Senate are just figures of a dead society to keep up a front for the American people, when was the last time either actually did anything to actually help the people if the U.S.A.
