BP says won't deploy small dome until next week

A small containment dome might begin trapping oil from BP's leaking oil well next week, a spokesman for BP Plc said on Thursday.

London-based BP has changed its timing for placing the undersea dome meant to pump oil from the mile-deep leak to a vessel on the surface, after a company executive on Wednesday told reporters the device could be in place by late Thursday.

"Probably toward the end of next week is when we will start to move it and put it over the leak," BP spokesman Jon Pack said. "So nothing particularly noteworthy is happening with that right now."
