BP Must Finish Gulf of Mexico Relief Wells

National Incident Commander Thad Allen said a pressure test conducted yesterday failed to prove there is no further risk of oil leaking from the well.

As a result, BP Plc has been ordered by U.S. officials to finish the relief well it’s been drilling before the well will be declared dead.

Drilling of the relief well will resume on Sunday, with the final kill complete in about four days.
