Yahoo! National News - Sun, 07/19/2015 - 03:26

FILE - This Saturday, Sept. 4, 2010 file photo shows vessels assisting in the drilling of the Deepwater Horizon relief well on the Gulf of Mexico near the coast of Louisiana at sunset. The BP leak, the worst-ever in offshore U.S. waters, occurred at a well that the company was in the process of temporarily closing. The accident killed 11 workers and spilled up to 172 million gallons of oil. Federal officials defend their well safety efforts since then, and there have more permanent closures. There were 25,928 permanently sealed wells in mid-May 2015, up 10 percent from 23,468 at the end of the BP spill, according to the AP analysis of federal data. (AP Photo/Patrick Semansky)Five years after the Obama administration promised to move swiftly to permanently plug unused oil and gas wells in the Gulf of Mexico, even more shafts are lingering for longer periods with only temporary sealing, an investigation by The Associated Press shows.
