Sensor systems continue to monitor MC252 leak

BP, which owns a 65 per cent stake in the operation of the well, is using the sensor systems to keep track of the two remaining leaks.
However, one valve that was allowing a broken drill pipe to leak has now been closed, shutting off the escaping oil on that part of the site.
A 100-ton containment dome is now being shipped to the area and aims to limit any further leakage.
BP adds that a relief well, which was started on Sunday, May 2nd, is now being dug but could take up to three months to reach completion.
"Work continues to collect and disperse oil that has reached the surface of the sea and to protect the shoreline," BP adds, with some of the oil being burnt off and dispersants dropped from above.
