A California nonprofit organization dedicated to the protection and preservation of wildlife has discovered what seems to be a massive oil slick in the Gulf of Mexico near the area of the original Deepwater Horizon spill.

The crew of an oil rig that exploded in the Gulf of Mexico last year causing one of the worst oil spills in US history ignored warning signs a disaster was imminent, an investigator said Friday.
Authorities in Scotland say a second oil leak from a drilling platform in the North Sea has been confirmed.
The oil has spread 15 miles beyond the leak, the firm says. Montana Gov. Brian Schweitzer says all oil and gas pipelines that cross state waterways will be reviewed and those that do not meet standards will be closed.
It took over a year, but earlier this month the Environmental Protection Agency finally released a partial list of the chemical components in oil dispersants used to “clean up” portions of the BP oil spill in the Gulf of Mexico.
