NEW ORLEANS- Crews will use remotely operated vehicles to get a look at the Deepwater Horizon wreckage, and hopefully pinpoint the source of a new oil sheen in the Gulf of Mexico.

This week, the sheen was connected to the BP spill in 2010.

The ROV is expected to be mobilized Sunday with direct Coast Guard oversight. The mission below the Gulf's surface will start next week.

BP and Deepwater Horizon Rig owner Transocean will cover the costs of the mission and any cleanup.
