It sounds like your blow-out preventer failed.

You can deploy submersible robots in an effort to reactivate the blow-out preventer or employ the top hat technique to contain and siphon off the leaking oil until you can stop the gusher. If the robots fail to reactivate the blow-out preventer, you can try a top kill and plug the leak with mud. However, this technique has proven to have limited success under high pressure applications. To overcome this, you can try relieving the pressure by drilling additional holes in close proximity to the leak through which you can inject cement to permanently stop the leak. This process takes a bit longer and requires a great deal of precision drilling. In the mean time, you will have to put up with the messy leak and neighbors complaining about the nasty stain for bit longer.
