BP announced that Top Kill failed to stop Gulf Oil Leak

The oil is still flowing in the Gulf of Mexico as you can see in the live stream from the Ocean floor. BP announced yesterday that the Top Kill procedure failed.
BP has pumped over 30,000 barrels of heavy mud into the oil leak and tried different bridging materials including golf balls.

BP has now moved on to the next method called Lower Marine Riser Package (LMRP) Cap Containment System.

BP says that the operational plan first involves cutting and then removing the damaged riser from the top of the failed Blow-Out Preventer (BOP) to leave a cleanly-cut pipe at the top of the BOP’s LMRP. The cap is designed to be connected to a riser from the Discoverer Enterprise drillship and placed over the LMRP with the intention of capturing most of the oil and gas flowing from the well. The LMRP cap is already on site and it is currently anticipated that it will be connected in about four days.

Let's hope that this method finally works to stop the oil from leaking. There is unbelievable damage done already.
