Electric logging is currently underway and after evaluation of the logs, casing will be set. The well will then drill ahead to the target formation. Approval has been received to drill ahead to 4,921 feet (1,500 meters) in a 4.75 inch hole.

The results of that section will then be evaluated and the nature of further operations reviewed at that time.
