Officials from British Petroleum have announced that they’ve deployed a method that is containing the oil spilling throughout the Gulf of Mexico. They will try and completely stop the leak by the end of this week.

An official said that at this point, 1,000 barrels a day of the oil spill are being contained on the surface by the drill ship. “This is just containing the flow, later this week, hopefully before the end of the week, we’ll make our next attempt to actually fully stop the flow,” BP Chief Operating Officer Doug Suttles said.
