"As BP increases the amount of oil it is capturing from the ruptured well in the Gulf of Mexico, U.S. officials said they will reassess their estimates of how much oil is still flowing into the water.

Since a containment cap was installed atop the broken pipe emerging from the BP's Deepwater Horizon well on Thursday, the daily oil rising to a container ship above has increased from 6,000 barrels on Thursday to 11,000 barrels on Sunday, according to BP." More>>>>

There are 42 gallons in a barrel.

The well is still leaking. What was BP's original leak estimate for the Deepwater leak?
