Workers finish removing debris from last month's gas well blow up in LA
COAST OF LOUISIANA -- Workers have finished removing debris from the wellhead of a gas well that blew out in the Gulf of Mexico last month off the coast of Louisiana.
Sand and debris have clogged the well and stopped the flow of gas.
The Bureau of Safety and Environmental Enforcement has approved plans to send a camera down the wellbore as part of efforts to permanently seal the well.
On Sunday, workers started drilling a relief well that will take about 35 days to complete.
Once that is finished they will use cement to seal it up.
