ROBERT, Louisiana— BP was confident Saturday its latest attempt to capture much of the oil flowing into the Gulf of Mexico will succeed even as the company disclosed yet another setback in their experiments to curb one of America's worst environmental disasters.

BP believes it can hook up its 1.6-kilometer long tube to suck oil from a blown-out well, despite an earlier snag with connecting two pieces of equipment. If successful, it would be the first time the company has captured any of the oil since a rig sank April 22 and millions of liters of crude started spewing into the gulf.
