11 Minute Press Conference held Explaining the TopKill Failure and What happens next. Presser held by BP and Coast Guard on Saturday Evening at 6PM EST.
Questions that arose during Evening After Presser ( Twitter)
(1) How Many Relief Wells are Being Dug at this Time ? During the Presser it sounded like only ONE was being worked on presently yet according to BP's own Documents and Issued Statements on the 24th of May, TWO wells were being put in place May 2nd one began and May16th the second began. This is a critical issue as the Government and the President had demanded TWO, and there needs to be a Backup well in light of recent events.
BP's own PressRelease of May24th says TWO Relief Wells already started, 1st Started May2nd,2nd Started May16th. Yet in Press Conferences of May 28th, and May 29th Only ONE well was mentioned.
