Storm May Thwart BP Well Containment

Sunday, June 27, 2010

According to a June 25 report from the Houston Chronicle, a tropical weather system heading for the Gulf of Mexico threatened to halt operations at the BP well leak site and send oil gushing unabated into the ocean. If a storm reaches the Gulf, oil containment operations and the drilling of relief wells to plug the leaking Macondo well will have to be stopped and equipment redeployed to safe areas. The tropical system is forecast to reach the southwestern Gulf of Mexico by early Monday, June 28.
