Overnight the angle was increased on the drilling motor
Every 300 feet we collect approximately two buckets full of cuttings from the shale shakers. In our lab trailer we wash the mud from the cuttings and then bag them for storage and future analysis.

Overnight the angle was increased on the drilling motor in order to fight a stubborn well that wants to head south when we'd rather it go north. A new bit was also installed, and today we're making rapid progress.
