BP Brings In Specialist For Proposed Oil Well Junk Shot

BP CEO Tony Hayward was reviewing final tests before deciding whether to proceed with a procedure know as a “top kill” to try to stop the leak that is gushing oil into the Gulf of Mexico, according to the Associated Press. If Hayward does give the go-ahead, the procedure should begin within hours and last as long as two days, said BP.

 A “top kill” consists of pumping huge amounts of mud and cement into the leak in hopes of stopping it. The mud and cement will be pumped at high pressure from barges down 5,000 feet. BP has stockpiled 50,000 barrels of the manufactured mud, AP reported.

According to CNN if the “top kill” doesn’t work BP will try a “junk shot”: Instead of pumping mud and cement, BP would pump “material like golf balls, pieces of tire and pieces of rope into the blowout preventer.” BP has call in for Junk Shot Specialists..
