MARSHALL COUNTY, Okla. (KXII) - The Army Corps of Engineers said an unknown amount of oil spilled into Lake Texoma 3,000 feet north of the Roosevelt Bridge.


Environmental specialist with the Army Corps of Engineers, James Vincent, said the investigation is still ongoing and it’s suspected the oil well was vandalized.

The well released oil and produced water, a term used to describe water as a byproduct along with oil and gas.

“We believe that it’s still small to a moderate size release, and we also know that the release has been stopped by the oil and gas producer," Vincent said.

The Oklahoma Corporation Commission said Godfrey Oil Properties owns the well and was quick to respond to the spill around 11 a.m. and are involved with the cleanup.

Sarah Terry-Cobo with the Corporation Commission said the cleanup includes the usage of containment booms with white absorbent material to soak in the oil and hazardous material.

“All of those things are removed, and sometimes are replaced several times to make sure they get as much crude oil as possible," Terry-Cobo said.

Vincent said the environmental impact to Lake Texoma is minimal, but will ensure to the public a total recovery of the resources.

“It has been reported to the National Response Center that’s operated by the U.S. Coast Guard. That’s one of our steps to show that we are doing a whole recovery," said Vincent.

Parts of Lake Texoma are safe to swim, but it’s encouraged to avoid any oil sheens on the water and to report any sightings to the Army Corps of Engineers.

The Marshall County Sheriffs will be investigating the damage done to the well.

Having dealt with a couple of oil releases/spills it sounds like they have it under control. I doubt that after the boom is removed you will be able to even tell where it happened.

call it what you will...he is not definitely not anywhere near the top of the list for QB's that I would choose needing a FG or touchdown drive late in the game.
