1:20 p.m. Advisory from the Office of Conservation

The Office of Conservation is advising the public that the Texas Brine is beginning work on the well pad shared by the Oxy 3A and Oxy 9 wellheads in preparation for moving in a snubbing unit to re-enter the Oxy 3A wellbore and clear out blockage currently preventing direct access to the original Oxy 3 cavern. The snubbing unit is designed to provide maximum pressure control in the wellbore to ensure safety of the public and of workers on site. Contractors will be placing wooden mats on the site, as well as moving some of the equipment already stationed on site to make room for the snubbing unit, expected to be moved on site within the next week.
