  • Second well on the way to cap deepwater horizon

    If you think threading a needle is difficult, imagine drilling into an 18-centimetre-wide cylinder 5500 metres below the sea floor. That is the challenge facing BP engineers as they attempt to drill two relief wells in the Gulf of Mexico in a bid to stem the flow of oil from the stricken Deepwater Horizon. A relief well aims to bisect the original well casing, enabling engineers to pump in mud ...
