FILE - In this June 26, 2010 file photo, oil from the Deepwater Horizon oil spill is seen floating on the surface of the water in Bay Jimmy in Plaquemines Parish, La. A new oil sheen was spotted in the Gulf of Mexico, although energy company BP said Thursday, Aug. 18, 2011, the discovery had nothing to do with its operations and was far from the site of its disaster-hit Macondo well. A spokesman for another company involved in investigating the sheen said he believed it had already dissipated since being first spotted last week. (AP Photo/Gerald Herbert, File)
