Satellite Source: RadarSat 2
Mode: ScanSAR Narrow VV
Resolution: 50 meter
Image Date & Time: 05-28-2018 1151 UTC

Confidence: High
Issue Date: 05-28-2018

Region: Gulf of Mexico
Location: 2856'16" N, 8858'14" W
Coverage Area: 6.37 km^2

Remarks:
Possible oil was observed in satellite imagery. This anomaly is unconfirmed 
as oil. The 6 NM long by 0.3 NM wide anomaly is faint relative to its 
background due to the relatively strong winds of 20-25 KT out of the NE.
 However, given that the anomaly did align very well with the winds and 
emanated from a known repeat leak source, the destroyed Taylor Platform,
 we have HIGH confidence in this assessment.
Uncertainties:
There are no uncertainties.
