The U.S. Coast Guard is investigating the impact of a spill of more than 9,000 barrels of oil in the Gulf Coast off Louisiana.
An underwater pipe burst in the gulf about 40 miles off the coast of Venice, Louisiana, according to the Associated Press. The offshore oil and gas exporter LLOG Exploration Offshore said up to 9,350 barrels escaped before the spill was stopped and there were no injuries reported.
The Coast Guard flew over the area Saturday and spotted three oil sheens, but noted that it won't affect the shoreline.
The Deepwater Horizon spill occurred in 2010 and dumped nearly 5 million barrels of oil into the Gulf.
