Yeah it's a real story

But it sure looks silly on its face:

No really? I thought they would open it up on spe­cial occa­sions, birth­days, national hol­i­days, drunken par­ties for bil­lionares etc.

The actual story is here and it does have substance:

Sut­tles’ announce­ment seemed to alter the strat­egy that Coast Guard Admi­ral Thad W. Allen (ret.), the fed­eral government’s point man in the dis­as­ter, had described on Sat­ur­day. Allen had extended a two-​day “integrity test” on the well until Sun­day. But, Allen said, when the test was even­tu­ally done, it would likely be re-​opened and con­nected to pipes that would siphon the leak up toward ships on the surface.

But on Sun­day, Sut­tles said that the process of fit­ting the well with those pipes would have allowed oil to flow into the gulf for per­haps three days. Instead, he said, the “test” of the closed cap would con­tinue indef­i­nitely. A BP spokesman said the deci­sion was made in con­sul­ta­tion with the gov­ern­ment, and that Allen has the author­ity to have the well opened if he sees the need.

I think that BP and the admin­is­tra­tion would much rather not have oil flow­ing reg­u­larly into the Gulf live on camera.

The actual story is here and it does have substance:

Suttles’ announcement seemed to alter the strategy that Coast Guard Admiral Thad W. Allen (ret.), the federal government’s point man in the disaster, had described on Saturday. Allen had extended a two-day “integrity test” on the well until Sunday. But, Allen said, when the test was eventually done, it would likely be re-opened and connected to pipes that would siphon the leak up toward ships on the surface.

But on Sunday, Suttles said that the process of fitting the well with those pipes would have allowed oil to flow into the gulf for perhaps three days. Instead, he said, the “test” of the closed cap would continue indefinitely. A BP spokesman said the decision was made in consultation with the government, and that Allen has the authority to have the well opened if he sees the need.

I think that BP and the administration would much rather not have oil flowing regularly into the Gulf live on camera.
