Stacking Cap Cuts Off Oil Spew

85 days, 16 hours and 25 minutes after the first report April 20 of an explosion on the Deepwater Horizon oil rig, oil stopped flowing into the Gulf of Mexico (through the stacking cap).

Pressure tests will determine if BP has to release oil again. To hear BP's Kent Wells technical briefing on the integrity tests click here.

A relief well will permanently plug the flow and there's a monstrous mess to clean up. Cheers to the stopping the spew, even if temporarily.
