Feds: Seepage near BP cap coming from another well

WASHINGTON (AP) - The federal government's oil spill chief says
seepage detected two miles from BP's oil cap is coming from another
well.

There are two wells within two miles of BP's blowout, one that
has been abandoned and another that is not in production.

There around 27,000 abandoned wells in the Gulf, and an
Associated Press investigation showed this month that they're not
checked for leaks.

Allen also says five leaks in and around the broken well are more like 'drips' and don't mean the well is unstable.
