BP Well Leaking 35,000-60,000 Barrels Per Day
Government scientists estimate that the blown BP well in the Gulf of Mexico is leaking 35,000 to 60,000 barrels of oil per day. The good news is that BP is capturing 25,000 barrels of oil everyday. That means only 10,000-35,000 barrels of oil are flowing every day into the Gulf! Hurray.
