Title: Bubbling oil slick.
Post by: Lamacca on March 29, 2011, 12:38:32 CET
I do not know how common this is but is certainly looks worrying.

After work yesterday I went down to see if there was anybody spinning down near the cement silos in Kordin.  ( Ras hanzir??) . There were some people spinning nobody caught anything but what got my attention was that every minute or so a bubble of oil would appear on the surface and than burst into an oil slick a few meters wide . The slick would be taken away by the current and Plop another one bursts.
Is this normal?

LOl it's true i've witnessed it many times. Bubbles of oil come up from the bottom and spread in the surface ..the fish must taste good lol
