BP Plc. will seek to nearly double its oil collection capacity by mid-July, the top U.S. official overseeing the Gulf of Mexico spill cleanup effort said on Friday.

Once a “hard cap” containment system is in place by the middle of July, BP’s oil-siphoning capacity will rise to up to 50,000 barrels per day, Coast Guard Admiral Thad Allen told reporters at a briefing in Washington.

BP’s collection capacity is currently about 18,000 bpd, and will increase to about 28,000 bpd once a new oil-flaring rig is activated next week, Allen said.
