Drilling of the 23” borehole continued this week. No site work is occurring on Friday due to safety stand down/training. No further work through the weekend due to the holiday.
Layne-Christensen will return to site on Tuesday and resume 24-hr operations through completion of drilling to target depth of 1,250 feet. Once reached, tools will be pulled and preparations for casing installation will begin.
At this time, Layne-Christensen is anticipating cementing of casing during the week of September 9th if current schedule holds.
