Gulf oil wells 10 miles from Deepwater Horizon site leaking since 2004, Press Register, February 13, 2011:
While the Deepwater Horizon well has been capped since July, another group of wells about 10 miles away has been leaking oil into the Gulf since 2004, according to federal records.
Citing litigation, federal officials refused last week to answer a series of questions about the ongoing leaks...
The company is reportedly in the process of drilling relief wells to staunch the flow. ...
In response to a Press-Register story about the leak, the Department of Interior and the U.S. Coast Guard suggested at the time that the leak volume was as small as 13 gallons a day. But John Amos, president of Skytruth and a former oil industry engineer... reported the slick contained a minimum of 3,157 gallons of oil.
