BP to Permanently Cap Leaking Oil Well Later This Week

By Jamie Pert - May 18, 2010

If you have been following the BP oil leak in the Gulf of Mexico you are probably wondering what the energy company plan to do to permanently resolve the issue, well finally the company’s chief operating officer (Doug Suttles) has revealed their plan.

Suttles recently stated that the issue was highly important for BP, he has since stated that they will never produce oil from the well again and plan to permanently cap the oil well with mud.

It has to be said that BP have been doing their utmost to funnel out as much crude oil as possible, however estimates suggest that their best efforts still leave 80% of the oil leaking into our oceans.

It seems as if BP’s best option is to fire mud into the blown-out well, lets just hope it works for the environment’s sake. For fully detailed information regarding the issue check out the detailed source article (link below).
