It is noted that so far, no damage to the coastline or wildlife has been observed.
The American oil and gas company Talos Energy has revealed a decrease in the rate of an oil spill in the Gulf of Mexico 3.2 km off the coast of Louisiana. This was reported on Monday by the Reuters news agency.
It refers to the official representative of the company, Brian Grove, who informed that no new traces of oil had been noticed at the scene of the incident over the past 24 hours. “So far, no damage to the coastline or wildlife has been observed,” he added.
A group of divers working in the area of the spill on Sunday found no leaks from the Talos Energy underwater pipeline. There are also special vessels designed to clean the water surface.
The spot, stretching over almost 16 km of water space, was discovered in the Gulf of Mexico on September 4. The leak was calculated thanks to satellite data and with the help of aerial surveys of the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration of the United States after Hurricane Ida.
