Gas seeps not necessarily a problem, because pressure in oil well rising, officials say, Times-Picayune, July 19, 2010 at 20:12 EDT:

Article Excerpts

Scientists have discovered four gas "seeps" at or near BP's blown-out Macondo well since Saturday... [T]he nearby spot on the seabed and the base of the blowout preventer [are] areas of concern.

Bubbles can indicate pathways where oil could soon follow. ...

The first real descriptions of the seeps Monday came not from the Coast Guard or BP, but from a White House briefing. ...

[T]he readings are much lower than expected -- 6,811 pounds per square inch and rising an inch an hour -- igniting a debate over whether the well may have a leak somewhere or has simply lost its initial oomph after flowing for 81 days.
