A top geosciences professor at the University of Houston is telling ABC News that the oil gusher in the Gulf is dead. Professor Don Van Niewenhuise says when people talk in terms of killing a well, they are referring to killing the pressure and he says the 'Static Kill' method has done that for the BP well. He says for the long term integrity of the well, BP will still need to pump cement down into it,. but for all intent and purposes, the well is dead.

The is the 107th day of the disaster.
