Preparing for the “Top Kill”
May 24, 2010

This is BP’s latest attempt to stop the oil gushing into the Gulf of Mexico. The “top kill” method will shove heavy drilling fluids then cement into the well via the Blow Out Preventer. Obviously this takes a great deal of prep and the Coast Guard just released video of those undersea maneuvers. BP won’t actually attempt the “top kill” until Wednesday. Watch the video of the Remote Operator Vehicles at work.
