While the Deepwater Horizon well has been capped since July, another group of wells about 10 miles away has been leaking oil into the Gulf since 2004, according to federal records.

Citing litigation, federal officials refused last week to answer a series of questions about the ongoing leaks, including how many wells are involved, how much oil has escaped into the Gulf and whether any fines have been issued to Taylor Energy Co, LLC, the company that owns the wells.

Federal officials said a cleanup agreement between the government and Taylor Energy “is the subject of a pending lawsuit concerning the release of details about the decommissioning project.”

Taylor officials did not return calls seeking comment.
