According to the Washington Post:
“BP has shut down siphoning efforts from its leaking well in the Gulf of Mexico after a ship collecting the oil caught fire, the company says. The fire is believed to have been caused by lightning. BP says the capture operation is expected to resume later Tuesday.”
My prediction is that later today a killer whale and his entire family will attack the ship, rendering it useless and spilling out all of the already-siphoned oil. Just a guess.
