BP (NYSE:BP) Ready to Implement Rapid Disconnect System

With the tropical storm and hurricane season posing a threat to their cleanup operations, BP (NYSE:BP) is preparing for their next step in the containment efforts.

To limit the amount of time away from cleanup and to protect their people, BP will put into place a floating riser system, which is for the purpose of being able to disconnect and reconnect fairly quickly if bad weather does become a factor.

Meteorologists have said this could be one of the worst storm seasons in years in the region, and the possibility of three or four of them directly hitting the cleanup area is very real.

The system should be operational near the end of next week.
