With Cap Holding, Crews Prep Attempt to Kill Spewing Well

Description:
With a cap holding pressure on a runaway BP oil well in the Gulf of Mexico, Adm. Thad Allen, national incident commander for the Deepwater Horizon/BP oil spill, reported July 26 that crews expect to finish preparations in the last week of July and begin a “static kill,” in which drilling mud and cement will be forced down into the top of the well on Aug. 2. Then about five days later, they plan to begin the bottom kill, in which the same materials are pumped into the well bore near its base, after being conveyed there through a relief well intersecting the wellbore 18,000 ft below the surface of the sea.
