WASHINGTON (Reuters) - The U.S. government is expected to announce that three-quarters of the oil from the BP Plc spill in the Gulf of Mexico has already evaporated, dispersed, or been captured or eliminated, The New York Times reported on Wednesday.

A government report, due to be unveiled on Wednesday morning was also expected to say that what is left of the oil is so diluted that it does not seem to pose much additional risk, the newspaper said.

The report found that about 26 percent of the oil released in the world's worst accidental marine oil spill was still in the water or onshore in a form that possibly could cause new problems.
