Satellite and aerial surveys, ship tracking information and interviews with local officials and others involved in the liquid response are being worked out by cleaners in the Gulf of Mexico to capture what they call a major oil spill.
Space technology companies Planet Labs and Maxx Technologies, one of the most visible waves on the coast of Louisiana following the hurricane, were identified by satellite images on Thursday.
At least 10 miles[10 km]of black water and rainbow oil were distributed in the waters of the coast two miles from the oil and gas center Port Forcho. Aerial reconnaissance images were released Wednesday at the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration.
A powerful hurricane struck one of the world’s largest chemical, oil and natural gas stations on Sunday, exacerbating the threat to the region’s fossil fuel infrastructure, which is linked to global warming. Oil and gas emissions.
It is not clear how much oil was spilled in the Gulf, according to a source familiar with the process. A leak from an old pipeline damaged by the storm was reported on Monday on a patrol flight led by several Gulf Coast manufacturers, and the non-man was authorized to speak publicly about the clean-up effort.
Late Saturday, two more boats appeared to join the clean-up operation. James Hanzalik, Assistant Executive Director of Pure Gulf Associates, Industrial Non-Profit Oil Spill Cooperation He confirmed on Friday afternoon that the flow had continued and that clean-up work was underway.
U.S. Coast Guard Lt. John Edwards is believed to have leaked oil from an old pipeline owned by Talos Energy, a Houston-based oil and gas exploration company. He said a cleaning ship hired by Talos was using slides to recover the oil and placed a local bomb in the area to control the spread. Talos Energy declined to comment on the record.
Coast guard boats have not yet arrived at the station, Lt. Edwards said, but agency Talos said 42 gallons of material had been recovered. He added that the agency has started preliminary investigations.
Many experts who have studied slides and satellite imagery say that the flow appears to be continuous and significant.
He led research on the use of oil spills on satellite and air images. “It is an indicator of thick, heavy oil, which is the main characteristic of darkness, surrounded by rainbow light,” he said. On Wednesday, a slide appeared to show that the leak started from the water.
The area is known for its dense pipelines, and in the past, hurricanes have caused the formation of mud slides or platforms that carry oil and gas from the seabed.
Kathleen E. Jones, a NASA jet propulsion laboratory scientist in Pasadena, California, who was on a flight to assess the damage caused by the storm, said the images were leaking too much oil and needed further investigation.
“In a situation like this, you can calculate the area where the fat is clearly visible, but you don’t know how thick it is. ” But according to her color, she said, “That is a very, very thick slide.”
The origins of the Tolos flow were first identified by images of Edom’s damage at the John Scott-Relton Research Center at the University of Toronto’s Citizens’ Laboratory.
“The reason for this flow is because it is in the open,” he said. If NOEA had not made that public, it would have been very difficult to explain what was the obvious environmental problem.
The Associated Press reported Wednesday that a long oil spill occurred off the coast of Louisiana, several miles east of the Talos River. It was not clear whether that prostitute was related.
Flyover and satellite imagery showed several other pieces on the coast of Louisiana. Someone who is knowledgeable about cleaning may say that sewage from another source may also be contributing to the feathers.
As of Friday morning, workers had fled from 133 production sites and six drills, according to media reports. More than 90 percent of oil and gas production in the Gulf is still closed, the agency said.
The office update did not mention the ongoing clean-up operation. “After the inspections, the product will be returned immediately,” he said. Calls to the office, as well as the Louisiana Department of Environmental Protection, were not answered.
Janny Acevedo-Bichacha, a spokeswoman for the Environmental Protection Agency, made inquiries to the Coast Guard. “EPA is committed to mobilizing resources to help cyclone-affected communities,” EPA said.
Naomi Yoder, a scientist with the Bay Area Sanitation Group in New Orleans, said the spill was caused by pollution. “The corporations that are poisoning our communities must be held accountable and they must reverse this trend,” he said.
A report released earlier this year by the U.S. Bureau of Investigation (FBI) says that since the 1960s, federal regulators have allowed oil and gas producers to leave an 18,000-mile pipeline in the Gulf. Those pipelines, 97 percent of those cut off in the area, are often left unwashed or buried.
A.D. In 2004, Hurricane Ivan destroyed an oil field about 10 miles off the coast of Louisiana. It is still the longest oil spill in US history.
