BBC News - BP prepares operation to seal Gulf of Mexico oil well

BBC News - BP prepares operation to seal Gulf of Mexico oil well

BP could begin sealing its oil well in the Gulf of Mexico on Monday night, three months after its rupture led to the worst oil spill in US history.

The US official overseeing the federal response said engineers were preparing to pump mud and cement into the well in a procedure known as a "static kill".

Mud and cement would then be pumped in from a relief well below five to seven days later, Admiral Thad Allen said. Only that "bottom kill" would fully seal it, he said.
