Oil catcher dome hits snag near leak site -BP exec

ROBERT, La., May 8 (BestGrowthStock) – BP Plc hit a snag in its
efforts to lower a giant containment dome to trap oil from a
blown-out Gulf of Mexico oil well on the sea floor that could
take two days to troubleshoot, a BP (BP.L: ) executive said on
Saturday.

BP engineers encountered flammable hydrate formations while
lowering the four-story structure onto the leak, said Doug
Suttles, the company’s chief operating officer.

“I wouldn’t say it’s failed yet,” Suttles said.
