The cause of an oil leak that allegedly spilled over a million gallons of crude oil along the southeast coast of New Orleans is under investigation, according to the U.S. Coast Guard Heartland. The total volume of spilled crude was unclear, but the Coast Guard tells Fox News Digital initial engineering calculations determined the potential amount to be 1.1 million gallons. The spill was first spotted and reported on Thursday around 6:30 a.m. and the 67-mile pipeline was closed, while three skimming vessels worked to recover oil on the surface.
