The U.S. Coast Guard in Morgan City is looking into a series oil sheens in the Gulf near the Deepwater Horizon oil rig that exploded last year, but they don't suspect BP's well as the source.

The Coast Guard says the sheens could have come from the riser pipe or other debris on the ocean floor.

Officials notified Transocean and are working with them to figure out whether or not the wreckage is the cause.

Transocean could be responsible for taking care of the debris and damages.
