Oil Slick from Platform 23051 Site – Aerial Video

Bonny Schumaker of Wings of Care flew out over the site of former platform 23051 in the Gulf on Friday, July 1, to document the chronic oil leak there. She reported seeing just a buoy at the location, and a long oil slick. Check out her blog to see several photos and this brief video she captured during that flight showing what appears to be a rainbow sheen (0.3 to 5 microns thick).


The Ocean Saratoga drill rig is no longer working at the site, yet this chronic leak since 2004 has not been repaired.  When will this job resume?  And when will it be finished?
