According to the USA government, BP is going to start off the ‘static kill’ operation to block the oil leak. The so-called ‘static kill’ operation will consist in pouring mud and cement into the Macondo well while a back-up well is planned to permanently cap the site off. The operation was expected to begin last week but it was postponed due to hurricane Bonnie which provoked a forced temporary evacuation of the platforms.
