Working on the Gusher in 5,000 Feet of Water

In this BP-released video, we can see how difficult it is to work on the oil leaks at Mississippi Canyon 252.  Only ROVs (remotely operated vehicles) can deal with the problem at a depth of nearly 5,000 feet.

As a result of this effort, one of three leaks was successfully capped.

To see the gusher itself, move the video forward to 2:10.
