BP Closed One of Three Broken Oil Pipes in Gulf of Mexico

The Obama administration is trying to head off criticism over its handling of the oil spill in the Gulf of Mexico with a two-pronged strategy: Showcasing every move in its response and pinning blame squarely on BP Plc.

President Barack Obama’s chief spokesman, Robert Gibbs, yesterday dismissed complaints from a Republican lawmaker as “badly informed,” and the White House released a 6,300-word compendium of presidential briefings, actions by Cabinet officials, and daily deployments of personnel, ships and booms, Business Week informs.

BP PLC said Thursday that in the response to the MC252 oil well in the Gulf of Mexico a valve that had been attached to the end of a broken drill pipe, one of the three points from which oil was leaking, was closed, Wall Street Journal reports.
