Pipe up the Leaking Oil: An Initial Success!

BP announced earlier today that "oil and gas is being received onboard the Discoverer Enterprise following the successful placement of a containment cap on top of the Deepwater Horizon's failed blow-out preventer (BOP). This follows the cutting and removal of the riser pipe from the top of the BOP's lower marine riser package (LMRP)."

Congratulations to BP, U.S. Government, and everybody involved!

I hope performance of the system would be enhanced soon to minimize or eliminate the residual oil leak around the imperfectly fitted/sealed cap.
