Oil began leaking Saturday from the site of an oil rig explosion in the Gulf of Mexico, according to the U.S. Coast Guard.
Initial reports indicate "there are breaks in the line" where the Deepwater Horizon was drilling when it exploded Tuesday night, Coast Guard Petty Officer Erik Swanson said.
Oil is leaking at a rate of 1,000 barrels a day, he said.
The leak reported Saturday is separate from a 1-by-12 mile slick generated after the disabled rig sank Thursday.
Rescuers on Friday suspended the search for the 11 people missing in the explosion, the Coast Guard said.
The rig - a mobile unit that moves to different locations in the Gulf of Mexico - was about 52 miles southeast of Venice, Louisiana, when the explosion occurred Tuesday night.
The rig had been drilling for oil in its current location since January, said Eileen Angelico, a spokeswoman for Minerals Management Service.
