OIL SPILL: BP READY TO START 1ST PHASE TO BLOCK THE WELL

According to the USA government, BP is going to start off the ‘static kill’ operation to block the oil leak.

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.
