Preparations for Plugging Tait Well in Wheatley

The next step in remediation of the Tait Well in the municipal parking lot will begin during the coming week.

The project team is planning to use downhole charges to perforate the well casing.

This is being performed in order to create holes in the casing in order for the cement to reach all areas of the well as part of the plugging operations.

These are industry standard procedures that are routinely and safely used in the local oil and gas industry.

Any noise or vibration associated with the casing perforation is part of the site operations.

Chatham-Kent Fire and Emergency Services will continue its on-site presence.
