BP & U.S. Officials Evaluating How to Plug Well Indefinitely

U.S. officials have ordered BP to finish the relief well after pressure tests have failed to prove that there is no further risk of oil leaking from the well, said National Incident Commander Thad Allen.  “The relief well will be finished and we will kill the well,” Allen said. “The question is how to do that.”  BP and government scientists are reviewing how to move forward after determining that about 1,000 barrels of oil are trapped in the Macondo well by a cement plug poured from the top last week. Injecting mud and cement from the bottom, as had been planned, may force oil out the top and wreck the existing seal, creating a new route to the surface for oil and gas, Allen said during a conference call.  The pressure test indicates the cement plugged the well’s central core, or production casing, then flowed into the oil reservoir and back up to plug the annulus, a space between the production casing and the outer casing that runs all the way to the top of the well. BP and U.S. officials will continue the evaluation as to how to proceed with a relief well that is intended to make sure BP’s damaged well will never leak again.
