NOAA’s Office of Response and Restoration (OR&R) provides science-based solutions to protect and restore the nation’s natural resources from coastal environmental hazards. OR&R serves the nation by providing expertise and a suite of products and services critical for making science-based response decisions that prevent further harm, restore natural resources, and promote effective planning for future incidents.
Editor's Note: The interesting map provided by NOAA and linked in the upper right corner of this page "shows the locations of oil spills and other incidents for which NOAA's Office of Response and Restoration (OR&R) provided scientific support for the response. It also shows the locations of other major spills, but it does not show the location of every significant oil spill" for every year from 1957 on. Select the year in the dropdown menu on the map page. Also, for some interesting comments by people who theorize the source of this "Wellhead Release," some of them knowledgeably go to ENE News.
