The new cap, or “Top Hat 10,” weighs some 150,000 pounds. It is designed to fully seal the leak and provide connections for new vessels on the surface to collect oil. The cap has valves that can restrict the flow of oil and shut it in, if it can withstand the enormous pressure.

In this image taken from video provided by BP PLC, the transition spool, top half in yellow, which goes into the wellhead before the new containment cap is placed on top, is maneuvered into the leaking wellhead, bottom, at the site of the Deepwater Horizon oil spill in the Gulf of Mexico, Sunday, July 11, 2010.
