Christina Pascucci of KTLA wrote that US coast guards say upon further investigation they have determined 1200 m of the 28 km pipeline coming from platform Elly has been displaced by 32 m. They found a 33 cm split on pipeline.
According to Skytruth analysis of undersea images taken by US coast guards, "it looks like seam failure - not damage by anchor strike or other physical impact." They add this pipeline was installed by Shell. And "according to this permit, it was supposed to be buried at least 3 m below the seafloor. Yet clearly it is sitting on top of the seafloor."
