Satellite Source: ASTER
Mode: Multispectral
Resolution: 15 meter
Image Date & Time: 04-30-2018 1638 UTC

Confidence: High
Issue Date: 04-30-2018

Region: Gulf of Mexico
Location: 2856'16" N, 8858'14" W
Coverage Area: 3.90 km^2

Remarks:

Possible oil was observed in satellite imagery. This anomaly is unconfirmed 
as oil. The anomaly appeared to be emanating from the Destroyed Taylor 
Platform repeat leak source in MC 20 and stretched 2.0 nm towards the 
North.
Meseasured winds at the time of observation were from the East 
and 10 knots. Modeled ocean currents were variable and under 1.0 knot.
 
Confidence was determined to be High given the anomaly is believed to 
be oil discharge from a repeat leak source and the anomaly possessed a 
silver/white shimmer in a sunglit location.
Uncertainties:

The full extent of the anomaly is unknown due to coud coverage in the
the area.
