JEFFERSON PARISH, LA (WAFB) - Oil and gas are shooting upwards from a damaged well in Bayou St. Denis, which is in lower Jefferson Parish just north of the BP disaster in the Gulf.
According to the Coast Guard, a tow boat struck the abandoned wellhead near Mud Lake early Tuesday morning. The Jefferson Parish Sheriff's Office has confirmed a 100-foot plume of gas and oil is spewing from the wellhead.
Jefferson Parish President Steve Theriot said the owner of the wellhead is the Cedyco Corporation out of Houston, TX. Gov. Bobby Jindal and other officials flew over the site to assess the damage.
"The location of where this well is is right in the main waterway between Grand Isle and Lafitte," said Jefferson Parish Councilman Chris Roberts. "So therefore, the waterway is shutdown. So, it's going to have some complications on restaging assets."
The assets include oil fighting equipment that was moved inland ahead of Bonnie last week. With water traffic blocked, they cannot get back out to the Gulf.
Crews are hoping to have everything opened up by Tuesday night.
