A total of 25,290 barrels were recovered on June 17, 2010 at MC252 well. The 16,020 barrels were collected with LMRP cap and 9,270 barrels were collected via Choke line of failed blowout preventer. The amount of 9,270 barrels of oil collected via choke line is substantially higher than an earlier estimate of 5,000 throughput capacity. ROV live feeds are not broadcasted via BP.com at the moment and it is not clear how much is still leaking into the Gulf of Mexico.
On June 16th, a total of 14,750 barrels of oil were collected by LMRP Cap and 3,850 barrels collected and burned by Q4000 platform. This brings total daily oil recovery to 18,600 barrels. BP continues doing adjustments to increase amount of oil captured through Choke Line of failed BOP.
