In Florida, officials confirmed an oil sheen about nine miles from the famous white sands of Pensacola beach. Crews shored up miles of boom and prepared for the mess to make landfall as early as Wednesday.
But it's a big gamble: Even if it succeeds, it will temporarily increase the flow of an already massive leak by 20 percent at least 100,000 gallons more a day. That's Nike Air Max 90 Essential Mens White
"We will closely examine the actions of those involved in the spill. If we find evidence of illegal behavior, we will be extremely forceful in our response," Holder said in New Orleans.
"I'm going to be bankrupt very soon," Le, 53, said as he attended a meeting for fishermen hoping for help. "Everything is financed, how can I pay? No fishing, no welding. I weld on commercial fishing boats and they aren't going out now, so nothing breaks."
The company has carefully prepared the next phase, knowing that another failure could mean millions more gallons spew into the ocean and lead to even more public pressure. And they say they have learned valuable lessons from the failure of a bigger version of the containment cap last month that was clogged with icelike slush.
"Will they have enough weight to overcome the force of the flow?" he said. "It could create a lot of turbulence, but I do think they'll have enough weight."
The stakes couldn't be higher.
is successful it could capture and siphon a majority of the gushing oil Nike Air Max 90 1990
Eric Smith, an associate director of the Tulane Energy Institute, likened the procedure to trying to place a tiny cap on a fire hydrant that's blowing straight up.
BP's stock nose dived on Tuesday, losing nearly 15 percent of its value on the first trading day since the previous best option the so called top kill failed and was aborted at the government's direction. It dipped steeply with Holder's late afternoon announcement, which also sent other energy stocks tumbling, ultimately causing the Dow Jones industrial average to tumble 112. history even worse.
Since the Deepwater Horizon rig exploded on April 20, eventually collapsing into the Gulf of Mexico, an estimated 20 million to 40 million gallons of oil has spewed, eclipsing the 11 million that leaked from the Exxon Valdez disaster.
The British oil giant has tried and failed repeatedly to halt the flow of the oil, and this attempt like others has never been tried before a mile beneath the ocean. Experts warned it could be even riskier than the others because slicing open the 20 inch riser could unleash more oil if there was a kink in the pipe that restricted some of the flow.
"I call that 'Shut your mouth money,"' said Murray Nike Air Max 90 Women 2015 Black Volk, 46, of Empire, who's been fishing for nearly 30 years. "That won't pay the insurance on my boat and house. They say there'll be more later, but do you think the electric company will wait for that?"
BP may have bigger problems, though. history.
"It is an engineer's nightmare," said Ed Overton, a Louisiana State University professor of environmental sciences. "They're trying to fit a 21 inch cap over a 20 inch pipe a mile away. That's just horrendously hard to do. It's not like you and I standing on the ground pushing they're using little robots to do this."
to the surface. But the cut and cap will not halt the oil flow, just capture some of it and funnel it to vessels waiting at the surface.
But BP's best chance to actually plug the leak rests with a pair of relief wells but those won't likely be completed until August.
PORT FOURCHON, La. As submersible robots made another risky attempt to control the underwater Gulf oil gusher, the crude on the surface spread, closing in on Florida. BP's stock plummeted and took much of the market down with it, and the federal government announced criminal and civil investigations into the spill.
The president said that if laws are insufficient, they'll be changed. He said that if government oversight wasn't tough enough, that will change, too.
on top of the estimated 500,000 to 1 million gallons gushing out already.
BP PLC's Doug Suttles said that although there's no guarantee the company's latest cut and cap effort to close off the leak will work, he remained hopeful, but wouldn't guarantee success.
"It's inevitable that we will see it on the beaches," said Keith Wilkins, deputy chief of neighborhood and community services for Escambia County.
The federal government also ramped up its response to the spill with President Barack Obama ordering the co chairmen of an independent commission investigating the spill to thoroughly examine the disaster, "to follow the facts wherever they lead, without fear or favor."
Florida would be the fourth state hit. Crude has already been reported along barrier islands in Alabama and Mississippi, and it has impacted some 125 miles of Louisiana coastline.
Crews try new effort to contain leak as oil spotted near Florida
After six weeks of failures to block the well or divert the oil, the latest mission involved using a set of tools akin to an oversized deli slicer and garden shears to break away the broken riser pipe so engineers can then position a cap over the well's opening.
Engineers have put underwater robots and equipment in place this week after a bold attempt to plug the well by force feeding it heavy mud and cement called a "top kill" was aborted over the weekend. Crews pumped thousands of gallons of the mud into the well but were unable to overcome the pressure of the oil.
More federal fishing waters were closed, too, another setback for one of the region's most important industries. More than one third of federal waters were off limits for fishing, along with hundreds of square miles of state waters. from Vietnam, had rebuilt his home and business after Hurricane Katrina wiped him out. Now he's facing a similiar situation.
