Oil anomaly observed in satellite imagery emanating from the Destroyed
Taylor platform. Slick is 36 nautical miles in length and approximately 
1.4 nautical miles in width. It initially extends to the northeast of 
the source, then southwest, and finally southeast. Oil is black in color 
and exhibits good contrast against the ocean background.

Confidence is medium high that the anomaly’s exact extent is unknown
due to vegetation and/or biogenics nearby.
