Company letter missing. Spill of unknown oil from facility causing sheen on water. Earlier that day, a 300 barrel spill of crude oil was discovered at Tank 250-1 which is next to the Meraux Canal (Incident 09-4246). However, Murphy personnel stated that the spill was completely contained and could not be the course of the sheen.
