We had some bad luck at TSM03 today.

We had some bad luck at TSM03 today. The drillers had reached 41m from the top of surface casing today. However, while installing casing today a thread failed causing four 3m sections to be stuck in the hole. The drillers were able to retrieve three sections. Unfortunately, the fourth section was stuck. The safest, most time, and cost-effective decisions was to abandon the borehole. The rig was moved to 2 m to the north and we managed to drill 1 m before the day ended.
