BP: Gulf systems captured 25,220 barrels of oil Tuesday

June 30 (Reuters) – BP Plc (BP.L) (BP.N) said on Wednesday that its oil-capture systems at the leaking well in the Gulf of Mexico collected or burned off 25,220 barrels of oil on Tuesday.

Meanwhile, Hurricane Alex was on track to come ashore in northeast Mexico after strengthening to a Category 2 storm, the National Hurricane Center said, but its path was far from BP’s oil-capture and relief well drilling operations south of Louisiana.
