NEW ORLEANS (AP) - The executive in charge of fighting BP's
massive Gulf of Mexico oil spill says the company is doing
everything it can to plug the seabed gusher but understands
everybody is frustrated.
Doug Suttles, chief operating officer at BP PLC, went on all
three network morning talks shows Monday with the same message: BP
knows frustration is growing that it hasn't been able to cap the
gusher in more than a month.
Suttles said on ABC's "Good Morning America" that BP's next
shot at stopping the blown-out well this week stands a very good
chance of success. But he said the global oil company has more
plans in case the latest efforts fails, like several before it.
BP plans to try to stop the breach Wednesday with heavy mud and
cement, a maneuver called a top kill.
