Natural Gas Leak – Ship Shoal Block 225

Reports of a natural gas leak on Ship Shoal Block 225 led to reports that initially made comparisons to the BP’s Macondo blowout and subsequent oil leak in the Gulf of Mexico. Reporters from CNBC called TDA’s John White to get his comments on the situation.  He described the Ship Shoal area to the reporters and carefully noted the differences in the situations in order to disseminate accurate information.

The leak was subsequently quickly brought under control by pumping drilling fluids into the well.
