Latest BP Briefing: “Building up about 2 psi per hour”, expected to decline — 6,720 psi near max (VIDEO)

Kent Wells Technical Briefing, BP Technical Update, July 16, 2010 @ 6:30pm EST:

CNN Reporter: Where do you think now, based on what you've seen, and assuming there's no leak, where do you think the pressure's going to max out with this well?

Kent Wells: That's a good question, David. We're still early in the process. So I don't, I don't want to try to be too accurate on that. I think we'll be better positioned, say tomorrow as we have a little more data on that. But, it's going to build up a little more. As I mentioned, we're building up about 2 psi per hour. We should expect (this) that that would continue to decline with time. We'll get less and less buildup.
