BP attempts 'top kill' to plug devastating oil leak

BP attempts 'top kill' to plug devastating oil leak 26 May 2010 Energy giant BP began a high-stakes operation Wednesday to plug a ruptured oil well in the Gulf of Mexico, shooting heavy drilling fluid known as "mud" into a stack of damaged pipes on the sea floor in the hope of sealing a leak that has been gushing crude for 37 days. In a statement Wednesday evening, BP CEO Tony Hayward said the "top kill" operation was "proceeding as planned." U.S. Coast Guard officials gave BP approval to start the "top kill" procedure as President Barack Obama expressed cautious optimism about its chances of success.
