Time drilling continued today and the new open hole
The drill crew beginning to trip out after a successful day of directional drilling.

Time drilling continued today and the new open-hole sidetrack was successfully started. Cuttings showed increasing amounts of shale with decreasing amounts of cement, indicating that the drill bit had kicked off the cement plug and into the shale formation. At 5:00 PM, tripping began to change the bottom hole assembly. Once completed, we will trip back into the hole and continue drilling to the next coring point at 10440 ft.
