BILOXI — A Boston-based engineering company, hired by a New Orleans law firm to take samplings in Gulf waters, recently found high concentrations of dispersant near an oil patch between Horn Island and Biloxi.

Boston Chemical Data Corp. President Marco Kaltofen said his group was collecting samples Aug. 9 at Horn Island when they came across a brown, foamy material near an iridescent sheen of oil. The team a detected chemical odor, he said.

“We certainly didn’t expect to find dispersant in that area,” Kaltofen said.

He said he was under the impression BP had stopped using dispersant in the waters in July, but his team found significant chemical concentrations of 780 parts per billion.

The sample, sent to a lab in Colorado, tested positive for three main ingredients in the dispersants used in the Deepwater Horizon oil spill, Kaltofen said.
