Brief -- GOM Pipeline Leak

The Bureau of Safety and Environmental Enforcement (BSEE) and the U.S. Coast Guard (USCG) on Thursday were responding to a release of natural gas and condensate from a pipeline at West Cameron 165 in the Gulf of Mexico (GOM), 32 miles southwest of Cameron, LA. A helicopter pilot flying over the site reported an incident to USCG at about 2:00 p.m. CST Wednesday. The pipeline is operated by Kinetica Partners LLC, BSEE said. "There were no platform personnel affected by the leak and at the time of the report, the sheen was about one mile across and 10 miles long," BSEE said. "The operator estimated the spill volume to be roughly 752 gallons, or 17.9 bbl, at that time."
