Coast Guard Responds To Oil Spill Off Louisiana
As the civil trial over the BP oil spill resumes in New Orleans, there’s word that a boat has struck an inactive wellhead off the coast of Louisiana, leaking more oil into the Gulf.
FOX News Radio’s Jeff Monosso reports:
The U.S. Coast Guard confirms the 42-foot crewboat Sea Raider struck a wellhead about nine miles southwest of Port Sulphur, Louisiana around 8 p.m. Tuesday.
That platform owned by Swift Energy.
(Colclough) “Is discharging an oily water mixture. But right now the amount is unknown at this time.”
Coast Guard Petty Officer William Colclough.
Swift Energy reports the wellhead became inactive in 2007. Local state and federal agencies are also responding to secure the well and contain and clean up oil. The cause of the incident is under investigation.
