BP gears up for two-phase effort to plug Gulf oil well – CNN.com

BP gears up for two-phase effort to plug Gulf oil well – CNN.com.

It will begin with the Static Kill, a slurry of heavy mud & cement pumped through the well cap and down the top of the damaged well.  Then through the relief well the same slurry will be pumped from the bottom up in what is known as the Bottom Kill.

Once the well is killed there’s still work to do.

Locals in Louisiana are worried that once the well is killed, BP will pull out of the area and forget about its obligation to the clean up effort and to the restitution to businesses along the Gulf.  BP assured the media that this won’t be the case.  But time can only tell for sure.
