The drilling operations were forced to stop due to a failure in the top drive transmission system. The top drive must be repaired in Bakersfield, which will take several days. The failure occurred when we were about to start coring, which forced us to delay the coring schedule. Hopefully, the coring and Logging While Drilling will start sometime next week. We will be offline while the top drive is being repaired.
