HOUSTON (Reuters) - BP Plc warned on Tuesday that a planned attempt to plug its gushing Gulf of Mexico oil well may be delayed or abandoned, as the energy giant faced mounting pressure from the Obama administration to contain the catastrophic spill.

Equipped with underwater robots, BP engineers plan on Wednesday to inject heavy drilling fluids in the mile- deep well, a tricky maneuver and its latest bid to halt the flowing oil that has shut down fisheries and soiled coastline.
