An Integrated Assessment of Oil and Gas Release into the Marine Environment at the Former Taylor Energy MC20 Site

NOAA’s NCCOS, partners at Florida State University (FSU), Florida International University (FIU), and TDI Brooks International, and with funding from BSEE conducted a series of integrated surveys from 1 to 7 September, 2018 at the former Taylor Energy MC20 site in the northern Gulf of Mexico. These surveys included surface and subsurface acoustic measurements, mid-water column oil, gas, and water collections, surface water sample collections, mid-water column video bubble collections, surface methane collections, and marine sediment collections. Ancillary physical water column data was also collected including ocean current profiles and conductivity, temperature, and depth.
