Huge amounts of gases including methane and pentane spewed from the Macondo oil well, along with at least 206 million gallons of crude oil that is still filling the gulf today. The journal Nature Geoscience, University of Georgia oceanographers estimated months ago that 500,000 tons of gaseous hydrocarbons escaped during the spill and the gas leak was equivalent to a minimum of 1. 6-1. 9 million barrels of oil, but could be as high as or 2. 2-3.
