The Shell oil company says an oil sheen it reported in the Gulf of Mexico is breaking up. Federal officials will continue searching for the source.

HOUSTON (AP) — Shell Oil reports that it has mobilized an
oil spill response vessel after a light, 10-square-mile oil slick
was spotted between two of its major production sites in the
Gulf of Mexico. The light sheen was spotted about 130 miles
southeast of New Orleans.
