Well Drilling Update

March 31, 2023 UPDATE: The drillers no longer intend to remain on site the weekend of April 1-2. They will return Monday, April 3.

The drilling process is proceeding as planned, with development going well. At this time, the drillers are waiting for screens to arrive prior to returning to develop the first well drilled in this new location and begin drilling a second. We now anticipate the drillers returning on Monday, March 27 and working on-site for approximately 8 consecutive days. Working through the weekend of March 25 – 26 is the most efficient approach and therefore preferred.

The anticipated timeline remains the same otherwise (4-6 weeks from Monday, March 13), with drilling taking place between 7 a.m. and 7 p.m. on weekdays and from 8:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m. on weekends. No drilling will take place on statutory holidays.
