BP well cap collected 6,000 barrels on Friday

MIAMI, June 5 (BestGrowthStock) – BP (BP.L: )’s containment cap over
its ruptured Gulf of Mexico oil well collected 6,000 barrels of
oil over a 24-hour period on Friday, and the company hoped to
increase the amount collected in the next few days, the U.S.
national oil spill response commander said on Saturday.

“In the first full 24-hour cycle yesterday … they were
able to bring up … 6,000 barrels of oil from the well,” Allen
said, speaking in Theodore, Alabama

This would represent almost a third for one day of the
leaking flow of 19,000 barrels (800,000 gallons/3 million
litres) per day estimated by the government.
