Latest Oil Spill Believed to be Caused by Houston Company

NEW ORLEANS, LA – This is the second follow-up story to our recent post regarding the recent oil spill in the Gulf of Mexico that was spotted on Friday, March 18, 2011. In that incident, an oily substance was found washing up on the shores in parts of Louisiana. Just a few days ago, CNN reported that the recent spill was traced to an oil well owned by Houston firm, Anglo-Suisse Offshore Partners. The CNN story appeared in an article at the CNN website on March 23, 2011. The news was according to a spokeswoman for the state Department of Wildlife and Fisheries. According to Coast Guard spokesman Lt. Cmdr. Chris O'Neil, the agency received three reports about a possible oil spill. One of the reports concerned oil that was washing up in Grand Isle, Louisiana on Sunday, March 20, 2011 so the Coast Guard began to investigate possible oil contamination in the Gulf of Mexico. According to the CNN article, the Coast Guard and the state Department of Wildlife and Fisheries believed that the oil was from the Anglo-Suisse well: O'Neil said the Coast Guard is still conducting tests and has not conclusively linked the oil to the Anglo-Suisse well, but Olivia Watkins, a spokeswoman for the state wildlife department, said its testing showed the oil did come from that well. The same article also had a response from Anglo-Suisse: The company said in a statement Wednesday afternoon that it did not believe it was the source of the spill, but had nevertheless dispatched its cleanup contractor to oversee efforts to remove the oil, which the Coast Guard said had impacted an estimated half-mile of shoreline. The company said its well has not been leaking and had not produced oil since 2005. Read the full story Published by maritime lawyer Gordon, Elias & Seely, LLP
