Stuart H. Smith, Oct. 11, 2012: The NOLA.com website also offers a new report on the leak this morning that looks at the possible causes in greater detail, including speculation that oil that was dispersed by toxic chemicals in 2010 is reappearing on the surface.
Times Picayune, Oct. 10, 2012: It’s also unclear how much of the oil turned into droplets by the use of dispersants at the wellhead may have dropped to the bottom around the wellsite, another possible source of small amounts of oil floating to the surface.
