That sounds around the Brutus or the Genesis area. Not saying it is them, just saying that's about the distance I looked it up, it is Ship Shoal block 225. Company is Toal.

The Coast Guard says it is responding to a "loss of well control event" at an oil and gas platform 74 miles southwest of Port Fourchon, La., in the Gulf of Mexico.


Energy Resources Technology Gulf of Mexico LLC reported the event, saying that a 4 mile-by-.75 mile "rainbow sheen" was visible in the gulf via flyover.


All platform personnel were evacuated safely, and the Coast Guard is working with the Bureau of Safety and Environmental Enforcement to investigate the occurence, a release said.

The Coast Guard and Bureau of Safety and Environmental Enforcement were responding Tuesday to a "loss of well control event" at Ship Shoal Block 225 Platform B, a natural gas and crude oil platform located about 74 miles southwest of Port Fourchon.
According to site assessments, natural gas is flowing from the well and there is a rainbow sheen visible on the water's surface estimated to be more than four miles wide by three-quarters of a mile long.
The Coast Guard and BSEE received a report earlier Tuesday from Energy Resources Technology Gulf of Mexico, LLC, that an oil and natural gas production platform, owned by ERT, lost well control. Work to temporarily plug the well is still going on, according to a Coast Guard official.
Two other active wells on the platform were subsequently shut-in as a safety precaution and all platform personnel were safely evacuated.
According to the Coast Guard, the BSEE Houma District staff and Coast Guard Marine Safety Unit of Morgan City are monitoring well control and pollution response efforts in ERT's Command Center in Houston.
Both BSEE and Coast Guard are also working with other federal and local agencies in response to this incident.
