“100 feet in air”: Governor Jindal confirms pipeline spewing orange/brown oil; Uncertainty abounds


The owner of the blown-out "pipeline/wellhead" is Cedyco Corporation of Houston.

A spokesman for Governor Bobby Jindal said the state does NOT own the wellhead/pipeline.

Governor Jundal said, "The Coast Guard's overflight this morning confirmed the pipeline/well-head is discharging a mist of orange and brown oil about 100 feet in air... This is the same thing we viewed."

According to CNN, "Jefferson Parish Councilman Chris Roberts said that while oil was gushing from the well in 6 feet of water, it was too dangerous to get close enough to estimate how much oil was leaking out."

"Until we know the condition of it," said Coast Guard Captain Ed Cubanski, "The quickness of plugging the well is uncertain."
