Six wells (two each from Wellpads B, C and D) have been completed and drilling is on-going on two wells at Wellpad G and on the produced water disposal (PWD) well.

The first of the two Wellpad G development wells has now reached total depth. The well encountered the gas-bearing Toro reservoir and will be completed as a producer, as planned.
