The Oil Has Stopped Flowing !
BP: No oil leaking into Gulf from busted well
NEW ORLEANS – BP says oil from its broken well has stopped gushing into the Gulf of Mexico for the first time since April.
The announcement Thursday came after company officials said all valves had been shut on a new cap over the busted well in an experiment to stop the spill.
Kent Wells, a BP PLC vice president, said at a news briefing that oil stopped flowing into the water at 2:25 p.m. CDT.
McAuleys World Comments:
What a shame that it took 87 days to complete a 7 day repair …. 180,000,000 (180 million) extra gallons of oil spilled into the Gulf.
