HOUSTON, May 20 (Reuters) - BP Plc said it is now siphoning
5,000 barrels (210,000 gallons/795,000 liters) per day of crude
oil at the leak site in the U.S. Gulf of Mexico.
BP had estimated the leak was flowing at a rate of 5,000
barrels per day, but scientists and the government have
questioned that figure.
"It's now capturing 5,000 barrels per day of oil," BP
spokesman Mark Salt, said.
