WASHINGTON (AP)– Divers at the site of an ongoing oil spill that appeared in the Gulf of Mexico after Hurricane Ida have actually determined the evident source as one-foot size pipeline displaced from a trench on the ocean flooring and damaged open.Talos Energy, the Houston-based company currently paying for the cleanup, stated in a declaration provided Sunday night that the damaged pipeline does not belong to them.The company stated it is working with the U.S. Coast Guard and other state and federal firms to collaborate the reaction and determine the owner of the ruptured pipeline. The companys declaration did not make clear if oil was dripping from the two smaller pipelines, but satellite images examined by The Associated Press on Saturday appeared to reveal at least 3 various slicks in the exact same location, the largest drifting more than a lots miles (more than 19 kilometers) eastward along the Gulf coast.The AP initially reported Wednesday that aerial photos revealed a miles-long brown and black oil slick spreading out about 2 miles (3 kilometers) south of Port Fourchon, Louisiana. Federal leasing maps show it consists of a latticework of old pipelines, plugged wells and abandoned platforms, along with more recent infrastructure still in use.With the source of the oil uncertain, Talos worked with Clean Gulf Associates to react to the spill.
