Will BP's containment cap keep oil leak stopped?
For the first time since the April 20 explosion on the drilling rig Deepwater Horizon, oil is not surging into the Gulf of Mexico from BP's blown-out Macondo well. At 3:25 p.m., a robotic submersible made the final turn on a valve on the well's new sealing cap, choking the flow completely.
Whether the well remains shut in depends on the analysis of pressure readings in the so-called "integrity test."
Will the containment cap hold? What do you think?
