October 1, 2010 3 Oil leaked from April 20 – July 15, 2010. On July 15, the leak was stopped after releasing about 4.9 million barrels (7.8×10 5 m 3 ) of crude oil. It was estimated that 53,000 barrels per day (8,400 m 3 /d) were escaping from the well just before it was capped. It is believed that the daily flow rate diminished over time, starting at about 62,000 barrels per day (9,900 m 3 /d) and decreasing as the reservoir of hydrocarbons feeding the gusher was gradually depleted. The Deepwater Horizon was able to operate in waters up to 8,000 feet (2,400 m) deep and drill down to 30,000 feet (9,100 m). BP estimated the worst case flow at 162,000 barrels per day (25,800 m 3 /d). Internal BP documents estimated the flow could be as much as 100,000 barrels per day (16,000 m 3 /d).
