Offshore Oil Drilling

Videos from the Field: July 27, 2010

The morning of July 27, officials in Jefferson Parish reported a new oil spill near Bayou Saint Denis, Louisiana.

The Coast Guard claimed that a tow boat struck a well head, causing the spill, and a strip of oil 50 yards wide and a mile long was spotted near the well early in the day.

The Ocean Futures Society team was onsite within hours and reported a geyser of oil and gas spewing 100 feet into the air and raining down on the marsh.
