ROBERT, La. - An executive with BP PLC says the good
weather in the Gulf of Mexico has been helping crews clean up the
oil and that more than 140 miles of containment boom have been put
Chief operating officer Doug Suttles said Thursday that tens of
thousands of gallons of oil have been burned off the surface.
Suttles says he has also met with local officials in Louisiana. He
says he is listening to their criticisms and they are also
providing good feedback.
Suttles also was confident the containment box crews hope to
lower 5,000 feet could in no way make the spill worse. He says
submarine robots have been moving pieces around on the sea floor to
prepare for the containment system.
