BP intends to burn thousands of barrels of oil it can't store

BP is planning to burn as much as 10,000 barrels of crude a day captured from the Deepwater Horizon well in an effort to maximize the amount of oil that can be recovered by ships currently floating above the spewing well. The goal is to be able to continue to pull as much oil from the Gulf as possible without having to worry about offloading the oil to drilling barges.
