Oil companies investigate report of sheen in Gulf


www.deseretnews.com

BP said Thursday that the shiny substance floating on the water's surface didn't come from its operations, and officials said it had since dissipated. Reports of sheen are common: More than 200 were called in last year in an area far from BP's well where the new sheen was reported, and 13 were reported Wednesday alone off Louisiana's coast.

A spokesman with Exxon Mobil Corp. said they were looking into the matter. Chevron and the Bureau of Ocean Energy Management, Regulation and Enforcement did not immediately respond to AP calls for comment.

Among them is Shell, which is still investigating the cause of a recent oil spill in the North Sea — the area's worst in a decade. The Dutch company counts several projects in the Gulf's Green Canyon Block. Shell did not immediately return a call seeking comment Thursday.

They are already denying it's from a "BP" well.

Don't you think you might go take a look.

You know, just to be on the safe side.

"We're talking 10s of miles (kilometers) if not further," he said.

That's just one report. Why don't you guys just go take a look.


It's just this kind of leadership that led to the Disaster.

I know that oil slicks happen all the time.

But why not try to catch it early?

Would it kill you guys to go take a look...

I must be completely stupid, but why do you ask an oil company to check out a sheen and see if there is oil leaking out there. have they not proven, beyond a shadow of a doubt and unquestionably that they will lie. when do they ever not lie?to me this would seem alot easier to track, the number of times they havent lied. shouldnt an impartial organization look into this.

You would think that we would send an impartial team to investigate, but have't they already been bought off???
First of all how could all the oil that was spilled, more that the Valdez spill that is still being cleaned up after 10 years or more, just suddenly be gone. There is no way possible.
I had seen the mess on the gulf coast first hand and it was all over the place. Yes they did a great job cleaning up the coastline, but there has to be tons of it laying around on the gulf floor.
Did the chemicals suck it up and just carry it to the bottom? Who knows, but will there still be oil sheens produced for years and maybe decades to come? You betcha. Will it be addressed properly and with those responsible for the mess to clean it up properly? No way.
