× FILE - This March 31, 2015, file photo shows an oil sheen drifting from the site of the former Taylor Energy oil rig in the Gulf of Mexico, off the coast of Louisiana. Federal officials say they have found fresh evidence of an “ongoing oil release” at the site of a 13-year-old oil leak in the Gulf of Mexico, where chronic sheens often stretch for miles off Louisiana’s coast.

The company claims there is no evidence that oil is still leaking from its unplugged wells on the seafloor. (AP Photo/Gerald Herbert, File)
