Dallas, Texas (WiredPRNews.com) – BP was granted approval Wednesday to proceed with plans to implement a new method to stop the current oil spill in the Gulf of Mexico. As reported by CNN, BP is set to decide Wednesday whether the method, known as the “top kill” plan will be viable following diagnostic test results.
BP Chief Executive Officer Tony Hayward is quoted in the report as stating of the plans, “So far, it’s looking OK… But we haven’t got all the data we need.” With the top kill procedure, mud would be pumped into the gusher to stop the massive oil flow. It reportedly has yet to be tried at such a depth under the sea.
