Abstract
    The blowout of the Macondo oil well in the Gulf of Mexico in April 2010 injected up to 500,000 tonnes of natural gas, mainly methane, into the deep sea. Spatially extensive measurements of methane dynamics in the months following the spill reveal a rapid rise and fall in the microbial consumption of methane.
