British Petroleum (BP) has decided to go ahead up with a â€œTop Killâ€ plan in hopes of plugging the leaking oil well, that has been gushing out lots of oil in the Gulf of Mexico. Oil has been spilling out into the Gulf of Mexico ever since the Deepwater Horizon oil rig explosion took place last month. 11 people were killed in the oil rig explosion.
Reports say that BPâ€™s Top Kill procedure aims at drilling mud into the well, in an attempt to block the oil flow into the Gulf of Mexico.
BP Press Officer Robert Wine sent out an email to FOX News producer Dan Gallo on the Top Kill procedure. He said: â€œThe tests involve pumping drilling fluids into the BOP to measure pressures and flow paths. This work may take up to another day and, when complete, a decision will be made on the execution of the top kill procedure itself.â€
