BP's (NYSE:BP) Well Has Commemoration Star for 11 Workers Killed

After another round of testing to ensure the BP (NYSE:BP) well was completely plugged, a cap of a star with 11 points on it was placed on the well in remembrance of the 11 workers who lost their lives when the Deepwater oil rig exploded.

U.S. Coast Guard Rear Admiral Paul Zukunft said the cap was installed on November 8 after final testing was completed.

Zukunft added that cleanup efforts continue along the coastline and is focusing on marshes and beaches at this time. About 9,000 people continue to work on the cleanup.

"Some of our more persistent oil is in that sand column on both recreational beaches and also on national park shorelines," said Zukunft. "In some cases it is either removed manually or we are using heavy equipment."
