BP is in the middle of its first major pipe cut

PORT FOURCHON, La. (AP) - Coast Guard Adm. Thad Allen is saying
that BP is in the middle of its first major pipe cut in the
company's latest bid to contain the oil spewing into the Gulf of
Mexico.
Allen, the national incident commander, said Tuesday that it
could be as many as three days before oil can be contained and
siphoned to the surface. BP has another major cut to do before a
cap can be lowered on to the leak.
It's the company's latest attempt to contain the leak. The
effort to plug the spill failed over the weekend and the best
chance to stop the gusher is now at least two months away.
