Feb. 3 — An abandoned oil well outside of Houston is likely the source of crude oil leaking into a Texas bay near the largest U.S. petrochemical port, the state’s energy regulator and an oil company executive said on Monday.

The U.S. Coast Guard, Gaither Petroleum Corp and state and emergency workers were attempting to contain and retrieve crude oil found on Sunday in Tabbs Bay off the Houston Ship Channel, and secure the source of the leak, officials said.
