A routine inspection was conducted in October 2020 by the operator of the pipeline, the Texane Amplify Energy company, without revealing damage. "We will therefore study every movement of ship over this pipeline and its neighborhood in the past year," said Captain Neubauer. They will also study the possibility that vessels anchored in the area could have been dislodged from their wetting during a violent storm last January, dragging the anchor on the bottom, or the potential impact of recent earthquakes.

The platforms in question

The date of the beginning of the oil leak, reported for the first time on October 2, is also uncertain. A slight crack was able to expand with time, to reach the slot of 30 cm currently present. Without deciding on the cause of the incident, the Amplify Energy boss, Martyn Willsher, pointed out that the pipeline is a 40 cm steel tube of diameter covered with 2.5 cm of concrete. "It's not every day that it moves from thirty meters," he insisted.
