By the CNN Wire Staff

Venice, Louisiana -- Louisiana Gov. Bobby Jindal said he expects to know Wednesday night whether BP's "Top Kill" attempt to plug the runaway oil well in the Gulf of Mexico is working.

"What they have told us is it will take a couple of days for it to be fully implemented, but that they should know in a matter of hours," he told reporters.

"We should, hopefully, know something later tonight," he said, adding that he planned to get an update from the Coast Guard as well as from the oil giant.
