BP has no comment on halting Gulf oil flow

HOUSTON (BestGrowthStock) – BP Plc declined to confirm comments reported on Thursday from the Coast Guard that the oil company had blocked the flow of oil from its leaking well in the Gulf of Mexico, even though the comments echo what BP said on Wednesday.

A BP spokesman said in an email statement that “operations continue.”

The Los Angeles Times reported on Thursday that U.S. Coast Guard Admiral Thad Allen said enough drilling fluid had been pumped into the well to block all oil and gas flowing out.

On Wednesday, BP said it appeared only mud was flowing from the well.
