A possible oil slick was observed in satellite imagery. The slick appeared 
to originate from the location of Destroyed Taylor platform, a source 
of repeat oil leaks. The anomaly extends approximately 20 nm east from 
the platform and is measured 0.34 nm wide.  The anomaly exhibits a silvery 
appearance in high resolution imagery and the direction aligns well with 
ocean current data near the time of image.

There is no uncertainty since the anomaly seems to be originating from
a repeat leak source.
