IGas advised us this morning that the conductor drilling rig has arrived on site. Photo shows equipment parked up on site today. We are told that the rig and associated equipment will now be set up and it is expected that the installation of the conductor will commence at some point later in the week.
Rather more equipment than we perhaps expected was delivered but if Marriotts have the contract for the conductor installation we might expect that they are also in line for the main drilling contract, no great surprise.
It certainly looks as though Tinker Lane might now take the lead and spud before Springs Road. Interestingly a hobby (bird) was spotted by an intrepid bird watcher this morning in the copse at the rear of the compound!
