    Escaping gas is chilling gulf water?

    I am sure you are technically correct, but the solar heating effect of the sun will make that a non issue. The surface temp of the Gulf in summer is about 90 degrees ! A little cooling could not hurt it and will not be noticed. What is a potential problem is that as the volume of natural gas increases, and violent lightning storms are a trademark of the Gulf in summer, there could be explosions in the area where they are working.
