What's going on in the gulf? I hear the BP horizon well is now leaking oil/gas from the ocean floor, and they're afraid to cap it again???

Thought the relief well was in place and bottom kill was done?

Sure has fallen off the media map, hasn't it?

Now, BP is belly-aching that unless they're allowed to drill more deep wells in the gulf, they'll possibly welch on their promise to pay.

The fat lady hasn't sung yet on this one.

Where did you hear it was leaking again? I know they were worried about the integrity of the mud/cement plug once they took the cap off

Here is a report from 8:20pm tonight. No oil has leaked since the capping on July 15th.

The fire yesterday on another well was extinguished and with no oil leaked.
