4:30 p.m. Afternoon Drilling Update #2

We have been advised by Texas Brine that drilling operations with the snubbing rig will start tonight instead of tomorrow morning, which was reported earlier. Drilling will continue until the cavern is entered or pressure is experiened.

NOTE:  Risk factors regarding cavern entry are not heightened. Residents have requested since the onset of this operation that they be notified 48 hours in advance of entry. Notifications and press releases were disseminated in honor to fulfill this request and inform all of up-to-date operations, here in Bayou Corne.
