The success of a move by oil giant BP to curb a leak in the Gulf of Mexico is “not clear” and the technique provides “no solution”, the US has said.
It was responding to BP’s move to siphon oil from the leaking well head to a tanker on the surface.
A government statement said it would not rest until the leak was permanently sealed and the spill cleaned up.
Out of sight out of mind no more.
I’m sure this will be updated through out the day.
The US government’s aggression against BP hasn’t lessened… I wonder whether the assault makes other big companies nervous
