BP oil leak plugged

Morning in the Gulf of Mexico dawned with a healthy dose of cautious optimism, something that the Gulf hasn’t boasted in 88 days.

BP has successfully capped the oil leak of the Deepwater Horizon well.

BP is still conducting pressure tests to make sure the cap will hold, but so far, it looks like it will. BP is giving the cap another day before they declare the cap a success. Relief wells are still being dug to access the oil still in the well.

Building pressure indicates that the cap is holding. However, BP has cautioned that the leak may only be halted for 48 hours.

While there is no longer any oil leaking into the Gulf, there is still a massive clean up that needs to take place. Several different methods are being implemented in handling the oil that has already escaped.
