BP has the cap in place...NO OIL! So far.

The leak is stopped, at least temporarily. BP has all the valves shut doing a 48 hour test to see if the cap holds and doesn't pop a leak somewhere else under the sea. That would be REAL bad.

there is a rumor my company, Apache, is buying BP's Alaska and other assets for $10 billion.

other reports said they are trying to sell off a lot of their non essential assets to help pay for the relief effort.

For sure we'll bring some MG to Oshawa!

I so hope the cap has no issues, so far things look good. Discussed some of the issues in a meeting today, just want to be able to put this behind us and get it cleaned up. But that will take about a decade!
