Oil sheen reported off of Gulf coast

Posted on October 5th, 2012 No Comments

The Coast Guard has reported an “oil sheen” off of the coast of Louisiana.

It was originally found by satellite images in the middle of September. The Coast Guard retrieved samples of the water for testing. Luckily, the samples taken show no indication of further damage to marine ecosystems.

The sheen is located very close to the site of the Deepwater Horizon explosion that dumped over 200 million gallons of oil into the sea.

The oil spill did vast amounts of economic and environmental damage to the Gulf region. If you were negatively impacted by the 2010 Gulf oil spill, contact an oil spill attorney of Williams Kherkher at 800-821-1544 to learn more about your legal options.
