New Oil Cap Stops Leak Temporarily

The Department of Energy’s new oil cap placed on the Macondo Well has stopped the oil flow, but the vents on the cap will be opened after a maximum of 48 hours and again allow oil to flow, reports National Incident Commander Thad Allen.  The temporary stop is only a part of the process to test the integrity of the well bore.  However, the new oil cap will eventually allow for the recovery of much more oil by the Q400 and Helix Producer vessels, which are expected to recover 80,000 barrels each day.
