Coast Guard Adm. Thad Allen says BP has successfully sliced off a pipe in an effort to contain the Gulf oil, but the cut is irregular and placing a cap over the spill will be more challenging.

Allen said Thursday that the cap was over the gusher and expected to be lowered soon.

This is BP's latest attempt to contain the oil. The best chance to plug the leak is still two months away.
