The Coast Guard says it is responding to a report of a collision between a boat and an inactive oil wellhead that is now discharging an oily-water mixture. Coast Guard Sector New Orleans watchstanders received a report that the 42-foot crewboat Sea Raider hit the Swift Energy-owned wellhead -- which is located nine miles southwest of Port Sulphur -- on Tuesday evening, according to a statement posted on the USCG’s digital newsroom. The cause of the incident is under investigation and the Coast Guard said it is working with federal, state, local agencies and Swift Energy to clean up any leaking oil substance. Swift Energy said the wellhead was shutdown and rendered inactive in December 2007.
