On May 29, BP moved to the Lower Marine Riser Package (LMRP) Cap Containment System by removing the damaged riser from the top of the blowout preventer and covering the pipe by the cap which connects it to a riser. The cap was attached on June 3, and the system began to capture the leaking oil.
Also, who was responsible for the Deepwater Horizon oil spill? Quadruple penalty. Judge Barbier said BP should shoulder 67% of the blame for the 2010 spill, with drilling rig owner Transocean responsible for 30% and cement firm Halliburton responsible for 3%. He ruled that BP will be "subject to enhanced civil penalties" due to its "gross negligence" and "wilful misconduct".
