GULF OIL SPILL

Map shows the forecast location of oil

BP says there are no signs that its busted Gulf of Mexico well has started leaking underground more than a day after it was capped.
Kent Wells, a BP PLC vice president, said on a Friday evening conference call that engineers are closely monitoring pressure as well as the temperature and sounds around the well.
BP would immediately reopen the cap and let oil back into the Gulf if it sees signs of a leak lower on the well bore.
Wells said pressure readings suggest the reservoir deep underground that feeds the well may be depleting after the three-month spill.
Undersea robots are also scanning the sea floor near the well that was capped Thursday for the first time since the disastrous spill started in April.
