<h2 class="lightGreenBold">Update on Gulf of Mexico Oil Spill Response - 18 May</h2> <span class="grey"> The riser insertion tube tool (RITT) containment system that was put into place in the end of the leaking riser is operational. It is estimated to be collecting and carrying about 2,000 barrels a day (b/d) of oil to flow up to the drillship Discoverer Enterprise on the surface 5,000 feet above. Produced oil is being stored on the drillship while produced gas is being flared.

At least it's a little progress.

This IS good news...let's hope that the problem solvers continue to work hard and get the rest of the leaks taken care of.

I'm confident that this unfortunate accident will help to put better safegaurds in place to ensure that this kind of accident doesn't happen again.

"Let's stick a 6" tube into a 21" pipe and see what we get?????", says BP.

How about using a larger tube or if that's all the pump canhandle how about more than one tube????
