Amazing space Get lost in Trafalgar Square
By James Hall THE embattled oil company BP confirmed on Sunday that a test on the cementing operation needed to plug its leak in the Gulf of Mexico had been successful.
The company said that tests had indicated that there was an effective cement plug in the blown-out pipe, “which was the desired outcome”.
The success – almost four months after the catastrophic leak started – came after an earlier procedure known as “static kill” was launched to stem the flow of oil.
“The pressure testing following the cementing operations indicates we have an effective cement plug,” the company said.
BP has been struggling since April 20 to plug the leak in a well that was attached to the Deepwater Horizon rig.
An explosion on the rig killed 11 workers and resulted in almost 5million barrels of oil flowing into the sea, making it one of the worst environmental disasters in history.
BP’s chief executive, Tony Hayward, resigned last month to make way for Bob Dudley on October 1.

By Patrick Hennessy VINCE CABLE warned his Conservative Coalition partners on Sunday that “fair taxes” must be at the heart of the Government’s programme for the next five years.
Asked in an interview about the “red line” issues that could lead to him quitting the Cabinet, the Liberal Democrat Business Secretary said tax policy must involve “redistribution” and underlined his determination to bring in a graduate tax to fund university places.
He ruled out a permanent merger between the Lib Dems and the Tories,
and dismissed talk of an electoral pact between the parties, a plan under serious discussion among senior figures close to David Cameron, as an “academic debate”. Mr Cable made it clear that losing next year’s referendum on changing the voting system for general elections would not lead to the Lib Dems tearing up the Coalition agreement.
He reserved his strongest demand for “evidence of fairness” during the planned five-year Coalition.
“It’s a clichéd word, but redistribution – and a tax system that means people at the bottom end of the scale pay less and
[those] at the top end of the scale pay more,” he said. “I worked for some years to get us committed in our party to what we call fair taxes, lifting low-paid people out of tax. We got that in the Coalition agreement and it was in the first Budget.”
Changes introduced by George Osborne, the Chancellor, in his June Budget saw people on lower income scales paying less tax.
But both Mr Cameron and Mr Osborne said they wanted to scrap the 50p top income tax rate for the highest earners introduced by Labour, and bring in a more liberal inheritance tax regime.
Continued from page 1 Afghanistan, is to be phased out and replaced by an order of 22 new A400M planes.
The £3.6 billion project for nine Nimrod MR4 reconnaissance aircraft is also vulnerable, along with a number of other surveillance planes.
The proposals include a swathe of cuts to the Army’s armoured regiments with the loss of Challenger 2 tanks, AS90 guns and Warrior armoured vehicles.
While the Army is likely to lose a few thousand soldiers in the coming year, reducing its numbers to about 100,000, it is braced to lose an entire brigade of about 5,000 when combat troops withdraw from Afghanistan in 2015.
It is understood that 7 Armoured Brigade or 20 Armoured Brigade, both based in Germany, are the most vulnerable.
Infantry battalions will be increased from about 600 troops to 750 as a lesson from Afghanistan has been the loss of combat effectiveness through leave and casualties, according to the plans.
The Royal Marines also face coming under direct Army control from Navy command and the possibility of being grouped into a “super elite”
unit alongside two Parachute Regiment battalions.
A senior Whitehall source said: “These are not Tory cuts, these are Labour cuts as a result of their irresponsible overspending. However, a lot of this comes down to how much political appetite there is to do this.”
An MoD spokesman said: “The Defence Secretary has made clear that tough decisions will need to be made but the complex process of a Strategic Defence and Security Review will be concluded in the autumn and speculation at this stage about its outcome is entirely unfounded.”
