2. There are natural seeps in the Gulf

Which is why these bacteria are hanging out there in the first place.

As to what they expel, it's the normal detritus. Seeps along the West Coast apparently have similar bacterial populations.

The bacterial populations naturally wax and wane with food supply, I would think. I bet quakes along the West Coast change seep characteristics there.
