Do you think that BP could have plugged the leak sooner?

    Most definitely.  In fact, there is a story about BP attempting to use a formula of mud to stop the leak, and a physicist outside of the company suggesting that that recipe be changed.

    It was not, and the first attempt failed miserably.  The citation goes into more detail.

    While BP deserves full blame and then some. I do think they wanted to plug the leak as soon as possible for PR and monetary reasons. Whether they were competent enough is another question.

    If they could have, don’t you think they would have? Or would they have preferred to spend so much money that they have to sell of huge assets, and tarnish their reputation for decades to come?
