BP exec says relief well within 200 feet of blown well

HOUSTON, June 18 (BestGrowthStock) – The first of two relief wells
being drilled to plug the massive Gulf of Mexico leak is within
200 feet (60 metres) of the blown-out well, a BP (BP.L: ) (BP.N: )
executive said on Friday.

Kent Wells, senior vice president of exploration and
production, said the next step will be to slowly hone in on the
ruptured well and eventually plug it.
