New Oil Cap Being Put in Place

Posted on Jul 12, 2010 in BP Oil Spill

BP is in the process of putting a new cap on the gushing well in the
Gulf of Mexico. After removing the older, temporary cap a few days
ago, oil has been flowing into the Gulf unobstructed. The new cap,
which has the potential to stop the oil flow completely, should be
completed today. If successful, the well will under go tests to see
if there is any other underground leaks of oil, and then will be shut
in until relief wells can be finished next month.

While the entire region hopes this new cap is successful, its
placement does not make the oil spill “contained” as BP and many
lawmakers will likely argue. In fact, much of the damage has yet to
even be felt by the Gulf Coast region, and the effects of this
disaster are likely to reach far beyond the point when BP finally
stops all of the oil from leaking into the water. If you or anyone
you know has or will be affected by the actions (or lack thereof) of
BP in this disaster, please contact Bloom Legal at 504-599-9997 so
