Barack Obama and BP warn of risks in oil spill 'open heart surgery'

Barack Obama and BP warn of risks in oil spill 'open heart surgery' --Operation to cut broken pipe deemed too risky earlier --BP boss describes 'open heart surgery on TV for everyone' 31 May 2010 Under immense pressure to plug its catastrophic American oil leak, BP is preparing for a hazardous last-ditch salvage operation that risks making the gush of crude into the Gulf of Mexico even heavier if its robotic submarines fail in an inch-perfect exercise to cut through a broken pipe a mile beneath the ocean's surface. After the failure of a "top kill" effort to stuff the leak with mud and rubbish, BP's managing director, Bob Dudley, stressed the difficulty of a new plan to pipe spurting oil to a ship on the ocean's surface, describing it as highly challenging for engineers who will be asked to perform "the equivalent of open heart surgery on television for everyone".
