Final numbers are double what initial reports first announced. Up to 1,638 gallons of crude oil were discharged when a distillation unit malfunctioned.

Officials are stating that the spill will not have damaging long-term effects regarding drinking water or local wildlife. BP has been asked to provide data from the spill and copies of investigations.
