WASHINGTON - The results of a pivotal federal US probe of last year's massive BP oil spill could be released as early as Wednesday, according to a source familiar with the matter.

The final report from US Coast Guard and Bureau of Ocean Energy Management (BOEM) investigators has been heavily anticipated by investors eager for clues on possible legal ramifications BP and its partners may face from the drilling disaster.

The investigative team has declined to say when the report, which was initially supposed to be released earlier this year, will be issued.
