water cooler         logoBP Oil caved into government pressure and has displayed a live video feed of the the oil leak, nearly a month after the infamous oil rig explosion.  Today they are set to begin a so-called top kill process, which is an attempt to stop the leak.

According to BP’s page, where you can view the live video feed, they state:

Please be aware, this is a live stream and may freeze or be unavailable from time to time.

Throughout the extended top kill procedure – which may take up to two days to complete – very significant changes in the appearance of the flows at the seabed may be expected. These will not provide a reliable indicator of the overall progress, or success or failure, of the top kill operation as a whole. BP will report on the progress of the operation as appropriate and on its outcome when complete.

According to Thestreet.com, “BP CEO Tony Hayward said on Wednesday morning he hoped to have a decision within 12 hours of the tests, and if BP does move ahead with the top kill, it could take up to two days before the top kill’s success or failure can be measured.

The pressure coming from the underwater well will be the enemy combatant for the top kill. An engine on a surface ship will shoot thousands of pounds of heavy drilling fluids, or about 50,000 barrels, into a five-story pipe to plug the well.”

On Tuesday, BP announced they would cut the live video feed as they feel they don’t need to show the world the act of “stopping” the leak.

They said the feed would be cut sometime Wednesday morning, but as of 12:30 PM Eastern Standard Time, it’s still live for the world to see.
