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 that we can fight on your behalf and help you get on the road to recovery.
