BP relying on ‘top kill’ cement strategy to stop Gulf leak (VIDEO)

(NEW ORLEANS) — BP Plc is relying on a so-called “top kill” strategy to stop the oil leak in the Gulf of Mexico, Reuters reported. Chief Operating Officer Doug Suttles said the strategy of pouring cement into the well has a 60 percent to 70 percent chance of working. If it doesn’t work, the next options are to try to put a containment device on top of the leak or inject debris such as golf balls and pieces of tire rubber into the well.
