Crews working to stem the tide of oil in the Gulf of Mexico capped one of the three leaking points Wednesday, a BP executive said.
John Curry, director of external affairs for BP, said the leak that was capped was the smallest of three. Curry said the pipe was cut off and sealed with a slip valve.
BP, which owns the damaged well, is responsible for the cleanup and costs of the massive oil spill.
