Satellite Source: Landsat 7
Mode: Multispectral
Resolution: 30 meter
Image Date & Time: 04-18-2018 1557 UTC

Confidence: High
Issued Date: 04-18-2018

Region: Gulf of Mexico
Location: 2501'27" N, 8245'14" W
Coverage Area: 0.86 km^2

Remarks:
A possible oil slick was observed in satellite imagery. The slick appeared 
to originate from the location of a ship wreck which is now known as a 
repeat leak source. The anomaly extends approximately 2.2 nm southwest 
from the platform. The slick is about .35 nm wide. The anomaly shows a 
dark appearance against the ocean background.

Uncertainties:
Since the anomaly seems to originate from a new repeat leak source, there 
is no uncertainty.
