ROBERT, Louisiana — After failing again to stem the flow of oil into the Gulf  of Mexico, BP scrambled Sunday to control the spill that the president's top energy adviser said was the biggest environmental disaster the US has ever faced.

Six weeks after the spill, oil giant BP PLC said that its latest plan to cap the well wouldn't capture all the crude fouling the Gulf. And the two relief wells currently being drilled — which are supposed to be a better long-term solution — won't be done for at least two months.

"Well, the relief well at the end of August is certainly the end — the end point on this game," Robert Dudley, BP's managing director, said Sunday on ABC television's "This Week." ''But we failed to wrestle the beast to the ground yesterday."
