BP relief well 'days from completion' as cap stays shut
Hope is rising that the ruptured Gulf of Mexico oil well may be sealed for good in weeks after it was announced a relief well was nearly complete.

US crisis manager Adm Thad Allen said the tunnelling should finally reach BP's broken well by the weekend and he was "pleased with the progress".

After fears for the stability of a cap BP put on the well, he said the risk of a new blowout now seemed minimal.

Seepage detected from the sea floor was traced back to a different well
....

BP vice-president Kent Wells said crews hoped to drill sideways into the blown-out well and intercept it at the end of July.

The relief well being drilled towards the damaged Macondo well is necessary to plug it permanently. A second well is being drilled as a back-up measure.

BP vice-president Kent Wells said the relief well was on schedule for completion.
"The relief well is exactly where we want it, pointed in the right direction," he said.

"The intercept of the Macondo well is still for the end of July."

At one point, Adm Allen had wanted to relieve pressure in the ruptured well by opening up BP's cap on the blowout preventer (BOP) and piping oil up to ships on the surface, but he relented.

Opening the cap would have required allowing millions of gallons oil to gush into the sea again for a few days while the pipe was attached.

Mr Wells added that experts were also considering a "static kill" whereby drilling mud would be injected downwards into the BOP, as well as sideways through the relief well, in order to seal Macondo.

It amazes me with All the leaks, and everything going on down there... they are acting like everything is still under control.

They are hellbent on relieving themselves of responsibility.

Love The Line.

"Seepage detected from the sea floor was traced back to a different well"

Ha Ha This is such a Joke to everyone involved.

The Story is no longer there by the way. It has been replaced with another story.
