The coring of the conductor pipe on the APEC 1 well in Wheatley is now underway and will continue for the next several days in preparation for the plugging of the well.
When the next steps in the work plan are completed, the well will be plugged with cement, as was done with the previous two wells found in the area.
There has been no gas emission at the site since July 6.
If at any time residents detect the smell of gas, they are asked to immediately call 9-1-1.
