Satellite Source: Sentinel 2B
Mode: Multispectral
Resolution: 10 meter
Image Date & Time: 05-18-2018 1628 UTC

Confidence: High
Issue Date: 05-19-2018

Region: Gulf of Mexico
Location: 2933'17" N, 8908'05" W
Coverage Area: 0.68 km^2

Remarks:
**Please be advised that this report was generated from imagery captured 
on the previous day, but which did not come available until today** Possible 
oil was observed in satellite imagery. This anomaly is unconfirmed as 
oil. The anomaly appeared to emanate from an oil facility located east 
of the Breton Sound area. The anomaly extends NE for approximately 1.87NM 
and has separated into two distinct patches. The anomaly appears silver 
and is indicative of oil under sun glint conditions. Wind data from Buoy 
‘KMIS’ indicates that winds were out of the WSW at approximately 6.
2 m/s and align well with the orientation of the anomaly. Confidence was 
determined to be high given the sliver appearance under sun glint conditions 
along with the orientation of the anomaly and its proximity to a oil facility 
as shown on NOAA nautical chart #11363.

Uncertainties:
Uncertainties are minimal, however we could not identify an recent NRC
report for this anomaly.
