BP says it is encouraged by results so far from its leaking oil well in the Gulf of Mexico.
Kent Wells, BP PLC vice president, says pressure is good so far inside the new cap.
He said there is no sign of any new leaks underground.
Engineers are looking for high pressure, because low pressure is a sign of another leak.
