BP Reverses Decision to Cut Video of Operation Top Kill
After reports earlier today that British Petroleum (BP) would cut the public feed to their oil spill webcam while attempting to stop the flow of oil from a burst pipe, the oil company has released a statement saying that:
"BP today confirmed that following detailed discussion with the National Incident Commander, Admiral Thad Allen, it will continue to provide live video feeds from the seabed throughout the planned ‘top kill’ procedure – the attempt to stop the flow from the damaged MC252 well by pumping heavy drilling fluids into it."
The statement does not provide any reason for reversing the decision.
