Quotation from source given contradicts title[edit]

"chief executive Tony Hayward said it would be at least 24 hours before officials know whether the attempt has been successful. " BP: effort to plug Gulf oil spill going as planned Also BP does not stand for Beyond Petroleum. SriMesh | talk 00:59, 27 May 2010 (UTC)

It actually does stand for Beyond Petroleum, it was part of a re-branding effort to appear both more "green" and "international". They dropped "British Petroleum" in 2007.  Travis "TeamColtra" McCrea - (T)(C) 10:28, 27 May 2010 (UTC)
No, actually 'Beyond Petroleum' is just a tagline, and a play on BP. They dropped British Petroleum a long time before 2007; it no longer stands for anything. Blood Red Sandman (Talk) (Contribs) 15:18, 27 May 2010 (UTC)
OK, based on above comments I've renamed the article to something that should be more suitable. Tempodivalse [talk] 16:28, 27 May 2010 (UTC)

New Headline[edit]

The current headline does not include the expanded content. The plug has failed. The new headline would be better as "BP: Plug for underwater oil leak in Gulf of Mexico implemented, fails"

Done --Diego Grez return fire 14:26, 30 May 2010 (UTC)
