BP is close to putting a new cap on the damaged well that's been spewing millions of gallons of oil into the Gulf since April's rig explosion. NPR's Richard Harris tells us the new cap has valves that may be able to stop the flow.
The new cap could be a big lead forward in efforts to stop the flow of oil from the blown-out well. The best case scenario was that BP will be able to close the valves on the cap. That would put an end to the gusher while BP continues to drill a relief well to seal it off permanently. BP plans two days of pressure testing to see whether the valves can be shut safely. The undersea well is badly damaged though it may not be able to take added pressure that would start to build up inside once the valves are closed. And in that case, BP would open the valves again. Then the company would gradually wrap up its ability to capture oil from surface ships. In facts of the case we could still see oil going into the Gulf as long as two or three weeks. Richard Harris, NPR News.

The moratorium was imposed after the Gulf oil spill, and we are expecting more details on this issue later this hour.

BP is close to putting a new cap on the damaged well that's been spewing millions of gallons of oil into the Gulf since April's rig explosion. NPR's Richard Harris tells us that the new cap has bows that might be able to stop the flow.

The new cap could be a big lead forward in efforts to stop the flow of oil from the blown-out well. The best case scenario was that BP will be able to close the bows on the cap that will be put into the gusher while BP continues to drill a relief well to seal it off permanently. BP plans two days of pressure test to see whether the bows can be shut safely. If the undersea well is badly damaged, though it may not be able to take the added pressure they would start to build up inside when the bows are closed. And in that case, the BP would open the bows again, then the company would gradually ramp up its ability to capture oil from surface ships. And that's the case we would still see oil go into the Gulf as long as 2 or 3 weeks. Richard Harris, NPR News.
