Macondo is very likely still leaking hydrocarbons through a ruptured casing string at depth through seabed fissures and cracks. The hope has been that these will self-seal and stop.

Which means the H-P Reserve, as well,..fully encompasses the Gulf Of Mexico.
That is to say that the entire North American Continent, is perched directly above the Hugoton Panhandle Natural Gas Reserve.

The Hugoton Panhandle gas field, in parts of Kansas, Texas, and Oklahoma, is an area of almost 8,500 sq miles and contains one of the world's largest known gas reserves. The field was discovered in 1918 by drilling on a surface structural feature and now includes almost 5.5 million acres which are being drained by 10,500 wells. Production is found in Permian and Pennsylvanian granite wash and carbonate rocks in the south and in Permian dolomite and limestone in the north. The primary controlling mechanisms for the accumulations are, in the south, a compaction anticline over the buried Amarillo ridge and, in the north, a hydrodynamic trap caused by a slight reduction in permeability at the W. (updip) edge of the field. In the Kansas part, production is limited both updip and downdip by water. The field is a volumetric reservoir and has produced a total of 24.5 trillion cu ft of gas. It now is producing at the rate of 1.4 trillion cu ft a yr. Remaining reserve is estimated to be about 28 trillion cu ft. (72 refs.)
HELIUM SHORTAGES - Helium also exists in concentrations as high as 8 percent in certain natural gases. Most U.S. helium-rich natural gas is located in the Hugoton-Panhandle field in Texas, Oklahoma, and Kansas; the LaBarge field in the Riley Ridge area of Wyoming; and the federal facility in the Cliffside field near Amarillo, Texas.
Crews working at Walton “hot spot” January 27, 2011 4:24 PM
Right before Christmas, BP cleanup crews returned to Walton County Beaches in large numbers as they follow SCAT (Shoreline Cleanup Assessment Techniques) reports.
The reports show an increase of petroleum product rolling onto some area beaches, especially in the Dune Allen and Topsail Hill Preserve shorelines.
"Those are hot spot areas," said Randy Seward, BP liaison for Walton County. “It has something to do with the underwater topography…”
On Jan. 19, The Sun photographed a 60-man crew working on beaches behind the Santa Rosa Beach Club. A worker at the scene said they were looking for tar balls. County emergency managers said it was “normal operations” while the Coast Guard declined to discuss the operations saying only that the crew’s mission was accomplished.

Too bad some of those images are missing, in this section (Hutchinson, KS), at a mobile home park.
'Some will claim natural gas requires EXACTLY fourteen percent oxygen to support an explosion, others will tell you twenty one percent. But let them try telling their absurd "exactly fourteen percent or twenty one percent oxygen" defense to the thousands of people who lost their homes due to natural gas explosions last year, because gas escaped into the ATMOSPHERE, in their house.'
Scientist finds Gulf bottom still oily, dead Ap Science Writer – 2 hrs 19 mins ago
WASHINGTON – Oil from the BP spill remains stuck on the bottom of the Gulf of Mexico, according to a top scientist's video and slides that she says demonstrate the oil isn't degrading as hoped and has decimated life on parts of the sea floor.
That report is at odds with a recent report by the BP spill compensation czar that said nearly all will be well by 2012.
At a science conference in Washington Saturday, marine scientist Samantha Joye of the University of Georgia aired early results of her December submarine dives around the BP spill site. She went to places she had visited in the summer and expected the oil and residue from oil-munching microbes would be gone by then. It wasn't.
This Dec. 1, 2010 photo provided by the University of Georgia, made from the submarine Alvin, shows a dead crab with oil residue near it on a still-damaged sea floor about 10 miles north of the BP oil rig accident. Marine biologist Samantha Joye of the University of Georgia said, “We consistently saw dead fauna (animals) at all these sites. It’s likely there’s a fairly large area impacted,” she said.

Oil Spill Reported Near Deepwater Drilling Site in Gulf Posted: March 19, 2011 05:18 PM
The Coast Guard is investigating reports of a potentially large oil slick in the Gulf of Mexico not far from the Deepwater Horizon site. According to a knowledgeable source, the slick was sighted by a helicopter pilot on Friday and is about 100 miles long. A fishing boat captain said he went through the slick yesterday and it was strong enough to make his eyes burn.
According to the Times Picayune, the Coast Guard has confirmed they are investigating a potentially large 100 mile slick about 30 miles offshore. They are going to a site near the Matterhorn well site about 20 miles north of the BP Deepwater Horizon site, according to the paper. The Matterhorn field includes includes a deepwater drilling platform owned by W&T Technology. It was acquired last year from TotalFinaElf E&P.
AP: BP oil not degrading on Gulf floor, study says Sep 21, 2011 9:41 AM ET
BIRMINGHAM, Ala. — Tar balls washed onto Gulf of Mexico beaches by Tropical Storm Lee earlier this month show that oil left over from last year's BP spill isn't breaking down as quickly as some scientists thought it would, university researchers said Tuesday.
Is BP’s Macondo Prospect Still Leaking? Fresh Oil Is Coming Ashore More Than 100 Miles Away November 2, 2011
Scientists confirmed last month that BP’s oil continues to bubble to the surface where the infamous Deepwater Horizon rig once sat. While federal officials bury their heads, the situation in the Gulf worsens by the day. We now believe this second wave of BP oil has made landfall on Horn Island, a narrow strip of federally protected land just 12 miles off the Mississippi coast.
Here’s the background. On Sept. 20, a member of my research team conducted a sampling tour on Horn Island (see link to previous post below). Strongbear, a Native American who serves as the managing environmental technician for Boston Chemical Data Corporation, witnessed an ugly scene on the island that assaulted the senses. From my Sept. 23 post:
According to Strongbear, the once white-sand beaches of Horn Island are covered in wide swaths of giant tar balls and gooey tar mats. “It’s a mess,” says Strongbear. “Some of the tar balls are the size of watermelons. When you break them open, you get a very strong smell of oil.”
Strongbear snapped a few photos of the tar mats and balls with his cell phone camera.
The beach samples Strongbear took that day were immediately sent to a highly reputable lab, ALS Environmental, in Edmonton, Canada. We received the certified results Oct. 28, and the data confirmed our worst fears: Fresh, highly toxic Macondo oil is coming ashore – again (see lab report below)...
Here are a few photos showing the area above the Macondo Prospect in August 2011.
LSU Study: Fish Harmed by Oil Exposure from BP Spill Swede White, WRKF November 29, 2011 Baton Rouge, LA
Many studies are being conducted following last year's Gulf oil spill. Two researchers at Louisiana State University published a study in the "National Academy of Sciences Journal" looking at the biological effects of the spill on sea life in the marshes of Louisiana. They produced the only known study with conclusive evidence linking toxic oil to harmful effects on sea life. Associate Professor Andrew Whitehead in LSU's Department of Biological Sciences says, "most people think the oil is gone now because we can't see it from the surface anymore, but there's much oil that's still in the sediment. That sediment can act as a reservoir for long-term exposures to toxic levels of oil."
Whitehead worked with Assistant Professor Fernando Galvez also in LSU's Department of Biological Sciences on the study. Galvez recently testified in front of the House Natural Resources Committee in Washington describing their findings. The two scientists honed in on killifish - often used as bait by fishermen. The species is known as a highly adaptable, tough fish and is one of the most abundant in the marshes of Louisiana. Galvez says the fish were ideal for their study.
"One thing that makes killifish a good model is that unlike other fish species that might be able to avoid the oil, Killifish have a fairly small home range. They don't move around a lot."
That means killifish will be consistently exposed to toxic oil unlike migratory species. The two researchers needed baseline data for a before and after comparison. Galvez and Whitehead took action shortly after the oil spill to collect samples of healthy Killifish and unoiled sediment. When oil hit the coast a research team began collecting samples.
Whitehead says, "really it's that early event data of when the marshes are oiled and not a year later."
What they found was the toxic oil affected the genes of the fish resulting in changes in gills, hearts, and embryo formation. Whitehead also says toxic exposure could affect mating.
Saha: Oil spill in Gulf still affecting locals Monday, June 18, 2012
The mutagenesis of the seafood has affected multiple marine species. This includes fish with oozing sores, underdeveloped blue crabs lacking claws, and eyeless shrimp. After the oil spill, many fisheries closed due to many marine organisms dying. In short: less business. The fisheries that remained open have to deal with the mutant seafood.
Fisher Tracy Kuhn stated, “at the height of the last white shrimp season, in September, one of our friends caught 400 pounds of these.” She was referring to the eyeless shrimp. What was most disturbing was these shrimp simply do not lack eyes but eye sockets.
La. officials close 12 miles of coastline after Isaac washes up tar balls, oil from BP spill hotspot Published: Tuesday, September 04, 2012, 4:10 PM Updated: Tuesday, September 04, 2012, 7:28 PM
The state is closing a 12-mile section of Gulf coastline from Caminada Pass to Pass Fourchon after Hurricane Isaac washed up large areas of oil and tar balls at the location of one of the worst inundations of BP oil during the Deepwater Horizon disaster of 2010. Robert Barham, secretary of the Louisiana Department of Wildlife and Fisheries, said agency crews surveying damage from Isaac discovered large sections of viscous oil and tar balls floating along the coast from the beach to one mile offshore between Elmer's Island Wildlife Refuge, just west of Grand Isle, to Pass Fourchon.
