Conductor Pipe Coring Almost Complete on APEC 1

The coring of the conductor pipe on the APEC 1 well in Wheatley will be completed by mid-next week.

Once that is completed, work crews will undertake geophysical tests to ensure the site is ready for the next phase of plugging the well with cement.

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.
