Oil Slick Near Venice, Louisiana – Photos Identify Possible Source

Here is a small gallery of photos of the slick near Venice taken during today’s Gulf Monitoring Consortium overflight.  This definitely looks like an oil slick, and it looks like our friends at SouthWings and Gulf Restoration Network may have pinned down the source – this slick is obviously emanating from a small, unmanned platform.  We’re trying to get the GPS coordinates from the flight so we can nail down the platform ID.  Stay tuned.
