Report: BP Well Leaked Nearly 207 Million Gallons

Wednesday, 04 Aug 2010 12:42 PM

A federal report on the Gulf oil spill says a total of nearly 207 million gallons leaked from the blown-out BP well.

The report released Wednesday says a little more than 172 million gallons of that made it into the Gulf. It says nearly 35 million gallons was held back by a temporary containment cap.

The report was released by the U.S. Geological Survey and the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration.

A government task force released an estimate this week indicating that a total of about 205 million gallons had leaked. It also said about 172 million gallons escaped into the Gulf.

It noted then that its estimate had a margin of error of 10 percentage points.
