New Orleans, La. – Rear Admiral Mary Landry said underwater equipment at the well shows no traces of crude leaking into the water. A blow-out prevention valve seems to be closed. But clean-up teams remain on standby.
"Until the well head is officially sealed and temporarily abandoned and the process is complete we will prepare for a response. And we have robust assets and a command post and we're fully staffed to respond to a major spill." :14
