Skytruth Alert: Fire Reported in Gulf of Mexico Near BP and Shell's Na Kika Offshore Drilling Site 2011-11-10

Once again an airline pilot (or observant passenger) has reported seeing a fire in the Gulf of Mexico.  This was reported to the National Response Center at about 8:19 pm on November 6, at a location in the deepwater Gulf about 12 miles southeast of the site of last year's BP oil spill.  It's also about 11 miles north of a fire reported on September 26 that we covered in this blog.
Location of fires in the Gulf recently reported to the National Response Center in the general vicinity of the Na Kika deepwater development project operated by BP and Shell. Platforms are orange dots; seafloor pipelines are orange lines.
