The containment cap on the ruptured well is capturing 630,000 gallons a day and pumping it to a ship at the surface. The government has estimated 600,000 to 1.2 million gallons are leaking per day, but a scientist on a task force studying the flow said the actual rate may be between 798,000 gallons and 1.8 million.
