ROBERT, La. – With BP declaring failure in its latest attempt to plug the uncontrolled gusher feeding the worst
oil spill in U.S. history, the company is turning to yet another mix of risky undersea robot maneuvers and longshot odds to keep crude from flowing into the Gulf.
Six weeks after the catastrophe began,
oil giant BP PLC is still casting about for at least a temporary fix to the spewing well underneath the Gulf of Mexico that's fouling beaches, wildlife and marshland.
Maybe BP oughta think about sponsoring a contest - the premise being that the best way to generate good ideas is to generate a LOT of ideas.
