Almost 90,000 gallons of crude oil gushed from a Shell oil facility into the Gulf of Mexico off the Louisiana coast on Thursday, leaving a 13- by 2-mile sheen of oil on the waves, federal authorities said. The Coast Guard said that the spill had been contained and that two companies were being contracted to begin cleanup operations. Map of the oil spill site. Bureau of Safety and Environmental Enforcement The Bureau of Safety and Environmental Enforcement, which is part of the U.S. Interior Department, said Shell Offshore Inc. reported that production from all wells that flow to its Brutus platform, about 90 miles south of Timbalier Island, Louisiana, had been shut off. No injuries or evacuations were reported, the safety bureau said. Shell said Thursday night that a company helicopter spotted the sheen near its Glider subsea system at the Brutus platform. No drilling occurs at the site, which is an underwater pipe system that connects to a central hub, the company said. "No release is acceptable, and safety remains our priority as we respond to this incident," Shell said. See how we have another great oil spill and the White House has yet to mention a word on it. Will the Obama administration somehow use this spill to advertise his push for climate change laws at a later date? Since this spill came from an underground pipe, did someone perhaps dive into the deep and force the spill. So perhaps the leftist White House could use this disaster to bring on the climate change agenda. Why this possible fact is suspicious is because the Obama White House has yet to discuss the matter after three days, and since they tend to love the idea of fake climate change you think they would of used this mishap or inside job to their advantage.
