BP Oil Spill Live Feed Update: No Oil Coming Out of Oil Rig – For the first time in 82 days the BP Live Feed and spill cam installed near the blown out oil rig shows no sign of gushing gas and oil.

The well integrity test being conducted by BP on the MC252 will commence today. The full closure of the well as seen in the BP Live Feed was done at about 2:25pm and up to now the well remains shut with no oil flowing in the gulf.

So far for the whole July 15, BP has collected approximately 7,915 barrels of oil were collected and approximately 4,660 barrels of oil and 29.9 million cubic feet of natural gas were flared.

The gushing oil and how it was stop was seen live through the BP Oil live feed and it came 85 days, 16 hours and 25 minutes after the first report of the Deepwater Horizon explosion.

An estimated 94 million to 184 million gallons of oil have spilled into the Gulf, according to government estimates. It was also estimated that more than 1,000 animals had been affected by the oil spill and these includes species of birds, turtles, and other sea creatures.

BP had already set aside $20 billion to pay for the losse caused by the oil spill and BP will be making payments starting early August. For those who had been affected claims are requested to be filed early. BP has 35 offices in the Gulf Coast area accepting claims.

We anticipate the next update will be provided at around 9:30am CDT on July 16, 2010.
