Additional equipment has arrived on-site and work crews will start the process of driving a larger conductor pipe over the existing APEC 1 well.
The initial work completed on the well indicates it is approximately 100 feet deep and was most likely constructed as a source of water.
Once the pipe-driving is completed, remediation will begin. It is estimated that drilling and remediation will be completed during the next two to three weeks.
No gas has been detected so far throughout the process, however, the team will sample for analysis if this changes.
