Bloomberg reports today that BP has completed a cement plug "at the top" of its blown-out well.
The article reviews statements by two of the top federal officials in the Gulf:
National Incident Commander Thad Allen said the next step is the bottom plug which, is needed to ensure there is no leakage inside the 13,000-foot-long well bore beneath the seafloor, said yesterday.
Paul Zukunft, the federal on-scene coordinator, said, “Even with the static kill, to me, as the federal on-scene coordinator, that does not buy me the full assurance that that well is permanently shut-in. We’re not out of the woods yet."
