Robots to begin cuts to gushing well - CNN.com

Robots to begin cuts to gushing well - CNN.com

(CNN) -- Within hours, robots will begin making a series of cuts to the "lower marine riser package" on a gushing oil well in the Gulf of Mexico, preparing for the placement of a custom-made cap on the package, BP Managing Director Bob Dudley said Tuesday.

The measure is aimed at minimizing the amount of oil that has been spewing from the well for 43 days after an explosion on the Deepwater Horizon drilling rig.

The process will involve a clean cut of the riser package. Warm water will be circulated around the cap to prevent the freezing that hindered a previous dome-cap effort.
If successful, the procedure will allow BP to collect most -- but not all -- of the oil spewing from the well.

WTF>>>>BP needs to be stopped, they have no idea what they are doing !
