    video from above that all operations will be for containment.

    The two kill bores not relief wells are both in progress. Drilling was halted on one of the kill bores so that a 2nd BOP could be in place to attempt to cap this well if current operations fail.

    It was decided to be to risky to place another BOP on top of this one. Instead of having the 2nd BOP waiting doing nothing it could be put back to work on the 2nd kill bore.

    This will mean better chance of early success with the kill bores, which have always been the only means to truly stop the well.
