BP Collects Some Oil from Gushing Well

Monday, June 07, 2010

According to a June 6 report from The Wall Street Journal, BP collected 6,077 barrels of oil on Friday, June 4, the first full day after a new containment cap was placed over the deepwater well in the Gulf of Mexico that has been leaking for more than six weeks. The first daily estimate of oil collected indicates that possibly between half and one-third of the oil that is spewing from the BP-owned Macondo well is being captured. Last week, scientists led by the U.S. Geological Survey estimated that between 12,000 and 19,000 barrels a day were gushing into the Gulf, though some scientists have said the rate is likely considerably higher.
