UK Today News: BP Top Kill – BP Oil Spill Live Feed 2010 Updates People On Oil Spill Issue
BP Top Kill, BP Oil Spill Live Feed: BP has come up with a “Top Kill” plan in hopes of plugging the Gulf of Mexico leaking oil well, that has been gushing out gallons of oil ever since the Deepwater Horizon oil rig explosion took place last month. BP’s Top Kill procedure aims at drilling mud into the well, in an attempt to block the oil flow into the Gulf of Mexico.
BP Press Officer Robert Wine sent out an email to FOX News producer Dan Gallo on the Top Kill procedure. He said: “The tests involve pumping drilling fluids into the BOP to measure pressures and flow paths. This work may take up to another day and, when complete, a decision will be made on the execution of the top kill procedure itself.”
The top kill procedure, was scheduled to take place today morning but since BP is still conducting tests — to check if this procedure will work under the intense conditions 5,000 feet below the surface — it is likely to take place later.
