  •  Officially the well is...Not Officially Dead! (12+ / 0-)

    effectively |iˈfektəvlē|
    in such a manner as to achieve a desired result : make sure that resources are used effectively.
    • [ sentence adverb ] actually but not officially or explicitly : they were effectively controlled by the people they were supposed to be investigating.
    • [ sentence adverb ] the real fact or implication is that; in practice : effectively, this means that companies will be able to avoid regulations.

    So when translated the statement given by A.Allen actually means:

    the Macondo 252 well is not officially dead.
