HOUSTON/GALLIANO, Louisiana (Reuters) - Energy giant BP marked a limited success at containing the oil that is gushing unabated into the Gulf of Mexico on Sunday and said it may be able to stop the flow permanently in about a week.

But reports of huge oil plumes in the Gulf -- including one as large as 10 miles long, three miles wide and 300 feet thick -- underscored the spill's environmental impact as the crisis moved into its 24th day.
