Independent gas and oil exploration and production company Energy Partners Ltd. (EPL) said Friday it reopened an oil well off the Louisiana shore after shutting it in because of a small oil pipeline leak.

Energy Partners reopened the well in South Pass Block 11 around 10 p.m. EST Thursday after repairing a six-inch transfer pipeline leak that forced the company to shut the well earlier that afternoon. The leak resulted in oil discharging into a landlocked marsh, according to a filing with the National Response Center.

Rig and platform problems have drawn more scrutiny after the April explosion at Transocean Ltd.'s (RIG) Deepwater Horizon oil rig that was leased to BP PLC (BP, BP.LN). The blast killed 11 people and leaked nearly 5 million barrels of oil in the Gulf of Mexico.
