Hi all

Wow another spill in the gulf,southwest of Port Sulphur.. The Coast Guard is redponding to a allision/collision of an inactive well head and a vessel
The platform is discharging an oily-water mixture, but the amount is unknown at this time

I hope this doesnt turn out to be something big

ALLISION, maritime law. The running of one vessel against another. It is distinguished from collision in this, that the latter means the running of two vessels against each other; this latter term is frequently used for allision

Will update as more info comes in

The Coast Guard is responding to a report of an allision between a vessel and an inactive wellhead about nine miles southwest of Port Sulphur, Wednesday
