BP to start oil funneling plan Tuesday: Coast Guard

HOUSTON (BestGrowthStock) – BP will begin a new and risky plan to funnel oil from its blown-out Gulf of Mexico well to the surface on Tuesday, the top U.S. official overseeing the cleanup effort said.

Remote robots will begin cutting through the top of the well’s lower marine riser package, and it could take up to 72 hours to get the containment device operational, said Coast Guard Admiral Thad Allen, on a conference call with reporters.
