Last quote by Thad Allen
We want to reassure the people in the Gulf Coast and the people of the nation that this is just one phase of what you have to do when you have an oil spill. It is not just the on-the-water and the beach cleanup. It has to do with the long-term environmental damage. There is still a lot of work to do but the nature of the work will change.

It would be terrific news if we can shut the well, but I don't think we can say that. I think there needs to be an overabundance of caution and I don't want anyones hopes up that we can shut this well until we can get the empirical pressure readings that e need and do a seismic survey of the sea floor and try to understand as well as we can the condition of the wellbore and casings.

Any kind of a surge from a storm would obviously exacerbate the oil, move it further into marshes and would cause problems for us. We are going to face that potential throughout the hurricane season should we have any kind of heavy weather.

We are in the process of moving a mobile drilling unit into place. It will probably be there 14th of June, which will add a 10,000 barrel capacity to what is coming out of the wellhead right now, in addition to the Discover Enterprise.

We have seen tar balls actually in Texas, so, what we are doing is fighting an omni-directional and almost indeterminate threat.
