"Government scientists have definitively linked a new oil slick in the Gulf of Mexico to the BP oil spill disaster of 2010.
A senior government scientist said the most likely source of the new oil is the mile-long length of pipe from the Deepwater Horizon rig, now lying in a crumpled loop on the ocean floor."
No, the Gulf Oil “Sheen” Is Not Oil Coming from the BP Wreckage
"We’re not sure yet. But top oil spill experts – such as UC Berkeley professor and government consultant Robert Bea and LSU professor Ed Overton – have told us that oil blowouts such as the one in the Gulf can create new pathways to the seafloor and enlarge natural oil seeps … so that leaks can continue for years."
We believe the late Matt Simmons, that the seafloor was cracked and the leaks will continue indefinitely. It can't be completely fixed, ever. - Wes
