Oil leaking 10 miles from BP’s blowout: PHOTO of “a crew boat appears to be spraying dispersant” — Relief wells being drilled


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.

  • Boy, America, if you believe that I have Eternal Life to Sell You!!!!

    Sounds like Simmons was Right, the cap was a Fake, a Photoshop; but really, the government has been lying to you for so long they don’t know the truth anymore! I would demand a FULL Investigation -from outside Governments- and Independent Professionals, because this sounds like Macondo is Still Leaking and the government is still Lying.

    10-miles Away …. that’s Too coincidental and indicates a BOLD FACE LIE! THINK AMERICA … BEFORE its too Late!

    You know, sooner or later, it’s going to cost lives. When that happens they will just Lie, because you keep Buying it.

  • Oh, BTW, America….

    There is no way they would be spraying corexit on a spill of such a miniscule volume! Since this is not related to macondo ( governmental rule of law is implied) said party: would have to get EPA permission to use corexit.

    Comrades, they cant even lie straight … The just admitted the Macondo Well is Still Leaking. Those were BP Trawlers Spraying Corexit!

  • Jean

    These wells have been leaking for over 6 years and now they're going to drill relief wells? Have they been using Corexit all this time? It's just a coincidence that there is an oil slick so near BP's well? Is BP paying off this other company to take the blame for this new oil slick? So many questions, so few believable answers.

    After all the "action" around the DWH..to "upset" an already leaking well 10 miles away..
    Conceivable...
    .......the Macondo well is still"gushing".

    This event caused great problems throughout this region, Early reports said there was a lift in the sea floor of 15 mile diameter had raised as much as 30 feet. I will try to find some links to this. Senator Nelson from Florida talked about possible cracks in the sea floor and much more in a video.
